Yes, Francis, do hunt that original down.  Perhaps there could be a place
set up to go to get xslts for xsd.

Also, if Chris Maden is out there, I would like to get rights to use the
xslt described here (of course with any
copyright verbage he wants):

(The email at the web site does not seem to work.  Contact me offline if you
are out there.)

Thanks,
Paul
(P.S. My apologies to Henry T, as my posting delay was the result of my
subscribing under an alias and not any list problem.  Sorry Henry!)
