Yes. Also, ensure that your Web server is sending the XML out as
application/xml not text/plain.

Righ. So would DocZilla, which does implement the CSS2 :before and
:after

That URL takes you to the latest working draft of XSL. Unfortunately,
due to a glitch, that draft points to a dated version of XSL-T (21
April).

The current version of XSL-T is http://www.w3.org/TR/WD-xslt and is
dated, at the time of writing this email, 13 August.

If you want something to work in IE5, on the other hand, you need a
different URL again; the one for the December 16, 1998 version of XSL,
of which they implement the transformation part.
