That looks pretty good, unfortunately, the company I work for is very
picky about licenses and they only accept certain Open Source
licenses.  At least Hermann's code has no such copyright on it
(Hermann, please correct me if I'm wrong), so I can just assert
"I found it on the Internet", but maybe the lawyers won't even go for
that, but in any case, they would probably have an issue with the
copyright-without-license even though re-distribution is granted.   I
will need to check with them in either case...

Also thanks for the tip regarding output method="text" vs.
method="html" - when I checked the online XSTL reference I looked to
if xsl:output took disable-output-escaping, and when I didn't see
that, I went ahead with the hacks, which I now reverted.
