As it happens [for reasons that we need not go in to :-(] I found myself
with the diff marked output of xmlspec in XHTML but not the
corresponding source.

So just yesterday I hacked a bit of XSLT to convert it back into
xmlspec. You're welcome to have it, with the obvious caveats that it's
really rather ad-hoc, it's "designed" with the output of xmlspec XSLT in
mind, especially the convention on divs (header, body, back; how divs of
particular classes wrap sections; the nuances of how bibrefs, specrefs
and locs appear, assumptions about there being a single class in any
class attribute, etc. etc. etc.)

That said, it may be a starting point, especially if one were to write
something that did some of the div wrapping.
