I think that's ok, but it also creates a pain in 
my stomache. Does it it mean I have to fetch the stylessheet
each time for each document instance ? The user agent to my DSSSL
engine supports caching (with a primitive caching heuristic,
I have to admit). Should I base the lookup on "href=" or
could (should) we include a (F)PI so that it reads like :

<?XML-stylesheet type="text/dsssl" href="foo.dsl" pub_ident="foo//bar"?>

PS: In general, I am still not fond of PIs. But I have to admit
that it is more a religious than a practical point of view.

Best regards,
