HTH, DaveP, having just spent 3 days with python converting
relative path attributes into absolute!

one job XSLT totally fell down on.

 <path d="M-3963 10782c14,8 51,14 105,15 54,2 97,-10 106,-14 14,-10 10,-63
55,-94 45,-31 78,-54 90,-93 11,-40 -35,-67 -59,-52 -23,15 -33,26 -41,37 0,0
13,-66 -1,-65 -19,2 -88,8 -158,8 -69,0 -114,-3 -138,-7 -17,11 -1,95 12,161
20,94 10,97 29,104zm247 -122c-1,-11 8,-25 17,-39 11,-16 14,-30 37,-42 22,-11
35,12 3,43 -32,30 -46,39 -57,38z" class="fil5"/>

How to process:
	c values in sextuples
	reset on a z to last fixed point
then update remainder to absolute values (upper case L M C)
instead of relative (lwoer case).

Not sure even 2.0 will do that, hence Python with regexp.

Regards DaveP
