i wrote the program that generates the xslt, so I can change it easily. we
are newbies to xslt and the boss wanted something that looked
straightforward (from a biz point of view I guess).

I need all the parameters in the template that is called by the one that is
called first. What does splitting it up do for me?

the parameters that are called namei are constant and could be hard coded I

I could use those for the constants or maybe pass them in as arguments to
the transform.

Thank you for your assistance!
