Thanks for the tip. I got a similar tip after I incorrectly posted an
XSL question to the XSL-FO list. A fellow there, Mario Madunic, was
kind enough to offer this information and gently coax me to post in
the right forum. I've since followed your and his advice, and it's
working reasonably well for me.
Appreciate the assistance,
