Cool.  I had intended to do that,  thanks.  Given David's suggesiton on 
the call that this all be merged with the issues list, I'm not sure how 
much maintenance will be done on the XSL, but every little bit helps. What 
I sent last night was the result of a few minutes hacking, just to see if 
the whole structure would work as a start.   Thanks again.

A suggestion for handling clarifications might be
to modify the stylesheet such that it added anchors in
the HTML document generated for each proposed clarification
such that they could be individually addressed via an href (from the
proposal link?) from the issues list for each of the
issues that the clarification is intended to resolve.

Conversely, the clarifications list should reference
back to the issue(s) that it is intended to resolve.

I've attached a modified xsl that adds the anchor tags
to each clarification for giggles. It might also be
worthwhile to add a TOC to the generated HTML.
