I'd like to start some discussion about what is the
best solution to the issue of the XSL stylesheets that
we use for our documents.  Here are some of my thoughts,
comments, and questions.

I gather that it's diffspec.xsl that should be used
for styling both the diff and non-diff version (with a
different setting of a global parameter).  If so, then
why do we have xmlspec.xsl as it stands now at all?

I still want to be able to have an xml-stylesheet PI
in the XML pointing to xmlspec.xsl, but then why don't
we replace xmlspec.xsl either with a copy of diffspec.xsl
with show.diff.markup=0 or with a two liner consisting of
show.diff.markup=0 and import diffspec.xsl?

I believe our current practice is to put a copy of both
xmlspec.xsl and diffspec.xsl into the same directory as
the XML and the two HTMLs.  Is this the best practice,
or should we be writing the xml-stylesheet PI with an
absolute path that points to the appropriate thing in
http://www.w3.org/2002/xmlspec/ ?
