Problems with IE 5.0 and examples in the XSL spec

Hi,

I`m trying to learn more advanced xsl by using some of the examples in the
xsl-spec, but almost nothing works. I`m trying to sort elements, process
elements according to content of their attributes etc. Are these things
supported in IE 5.0 at all?

What I`m looking for is something like this :

Ex 1.

A XML-document like this :

<employees>
	<employee>
		<firstname>Linus</firstname>
		<lastname>Torvalds</lastname>
	</employee>
</employees>

with an output like this :

<b>Torvalds, Linus</b>

Ex 2.

A XML-document like this :

<programmers>
	<programmer os="Linux">
		<firstname>Linus</firstname>
		<lastname>Torvalds</lastname>
	</programmer>
	<programmer os="Microsoft">
		<firstname>Bill</firstname>
		<lastname>Gates</lastname>
	</programmer>
</programmers>

and a stylesheet that only shows programmers that work in Linux,
perhaps something like this :

Programmers working on "Linux" :
Linus Torvalds


---------------------------------------------------------------

It seems as if the {@attribute}- and {element}-part is also buggy. The
specs say I can do something like 

<photograph>
	<image>penguin.jpg</image>
	<desc>A cute little penguin.</desc>
</photograph>

and use a template like this

<xsl:template match="photograph">
<img src="{image}" alt="{desc}">	
<xsl:apply-templates/>
</xsl:template>

to produce this :

<img src="penguin.jpg" alt="A cute little penguin.">

but nothing works in IE 5.0

I`m using the final release of IE.

HELP!!!!
