I was reading the docs on Microsofts IE5 Beta, and it look like they
still support scripting in their implementation of XSL.

They have introduced a new element called <xsl:eval>, that does the
same thing that <eval> used to do in their old msxsl processor.  I
have not tried it out, but I assume that would do the trick.

Interestingly the docs don't mention that this is not a standard XSL
element.  What are the chances of this becoming part of the standard?
