| Thank you Norman. I am copying to DIWG. Your mention of XSLT is in keeping

Yes, I had been made aware of that and didn't notice that it wasn't
mentioned in the message I replied to.

I think using AVTs fits in with one of the suggestions I made:

| Alternatively, you could invent an expression language and say that

| evaluate the expressions, and then apply an XInclude processor.

Instead of inventing an expression language, you could say that you
expand AVTs. You still have to fiddle with the processing model, of
course, because you don't want the processor to attempt to expand
XInclude before you evaluate the AVT!
