I tried that, but
- that would be no difference to the PERL solution on my own website
(which acts as a local web service).
- it simply does not work to access any document which does not reside
on the same domain as the XML file by web browser security.
That is the reason for my statement highlighted by ">>".
This is no problem is the author of a XML/XSLT also is allowed
to place a PERL script/Web service on the same domain he installs
the XML/XSLT onto [which is no problem for me since it is my own :-)].

Re: [xsl] question on random
Please respond to numbers for browser XSLT
Not to get off topic, but outside the community of IT professionals, IE
clearly dominates. Depending on the target audience, IE might account
for more than 95% of browser share.
I /still/ find websites that tell me to use IE instead of Firefox.
Now back on topic, could you use random.org or a similar online random
