My standard procedure is to run the results through tidy ("-q -utf8
-mn -asxml" if anyone is interested) before actually putting them on
the web. I think the XHTML stylesheets for XML Spec (which are, in
fact, generated entirely mechanically from the HTML ones) were a bad
idea. But several folks explicitly asked for them so I provided them.
