Hi John,

Thank you very much for your help.

Here is some feedback about the test.

I got a problem with the xsl file. The file doesn't have a xml prolog like:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
So the parser rejected it as a non XML document :-). So I set a flag to
bypass the XML document validation and I then got the following error:

A name contained an invalid character. Line 76, Position 27
 <bees b-ness="&BEE4URL;"/> in the XSL document.

Thanks, that was a good stress test.

I've got one sort-of complete set of test files up so far:
	XML: http://www.flixml.org/flixml/detour_1.xml
	DTD: http://www.flixml.org/flixml/flixml_03.dtd
	XSL: http://www.flixml.org/flixml/flixml.xsl
	CSS: http://www.flixml.org/flixml/flixml_in_html.css

I've been processing this stuff with XT, converting the XML document into
HTML with the XSL file. The generated HTML file (at
http://www.flixml.org/flixml/detour_1.html) includes a <link> tag pointing
to the CSS file. There's nothing particularly exotic about any of this --
I'm still learning :) -- but I did have fun building in some IDs and IDREFs
and converting them to <a name...> and <a href...> tags, respectively.

(Note that validating parsers complain about one of the XML tags,
apparently because it's got an href attribute whose value is an entity -- a
URL -- declared in the external DTD subset.)

Will let you know as the set of XML docs gets built up. I've got two more
in the pipeline.
