Wanting to clarify the reference to a stylesheet from
a document instance, I received this from the Max.

Looks like the M$ adopted way of saying the stylesheet
is XSLT will be changed to align with the RFC.

so now it should be

<?xml-stylesheet type="application/xslt+xml" href="style/page.xsl"?>
Should this be formalised in 2.0?

(Sorry, I don't have much time to follow the list) You're right, there
is no text/xsl mime type, although there is a text/css (RFC2318
[1]). BUT, there is "application/xslt+xml", recently defined by RFC
3023 [2], dated January 2001. So I guess it's that one Microsoft and
others should use. But I reckon it'll take time for vendors to use it
(ask David C about text/mathml+xml, defined in the same RFC).

Cheers,

Max.
