Daggers have been out on the XSL-list on this issue for a good long time.
(See the archives at http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list for too many

(http://www.operasoftware.com/people/howcome/1999/foch.html) kicked off
about two weeks of fairly explosive debate about a month ago, but these
issues have been simmering for a long while.

It's wonderful to see XML.com publishing controversial articles, especially
