caching xml document

To do that, you need to serialize the XML within your stylesheet.
Unfortunately, because you want this to work in Netscape as well, you
can't use MSXML to create a script to do it (which is the easiest

Instead, you need something like Evan's xml-to-string.xsl stylesheet
(http://xmlportfolio.com/xml-to-string/) to serialize the XML into a
string. Follow the instructions there, but basically you want to
import the stylesheet and then call the xml-to-string template,
passing the root node of the XML as the value of the node-set
parameter, with something like:

  <input type="hidden" name="cache">
    <xsl:attribute name="value">
      <xsl:call-template name="xml-to-string">
        <xsl:with-param name="node-set" select="/" />
