what's wrong with it!!! It's _exactly_ how NDATA entities work.
Oh dear, I got it very wrong, sorry. unparsed-entity-uri() is
completely new to me (with 7 years ish of xslt now....)
As far as i can see the XSLT
would do the right thing here.
Yes, reading around briefly it seems that's how it works, although it
looks like a really bad idea. Surely a legacy thing? (or is it widely
used and I'm just blinkered?)
