If that was the design then it's working exactly as planned. The
difference is, I'm approaching this from the stand point of how can I use
XSL now to simplify web design and you've probably got a longer term view.
By your (perfectly valid) definition, the major 4th generation browsers
are broken. I think we can both agree that they'll be in use for quite some
time, though. My goal is to produce files that are broken-browser-readable :)

I apologize if I sounded insulting--I was probably frustrated when I
wrote my last message. I meant to leave open the possibility that there
exists a good reason for this design decision.
I question the relative importance of insisting that generated documents
be well-formed. Perhaps I don't have a full understanding of what good
things come from this.
