	Exactly! the XML data is a set of instructions to the XSL engine in exactly
the same way as the javascript within a <script> block is a set of
instructions to the javascript interpreter or an HTML document is a set of
instructions to an HTML layout engine or any other language is a set of
instructions to its evaluator. The distinction between data and program is
completely arbitrary.
