  Hum, the first thing to say would be to tell which XSLT processor
you used. My guess is that it's xsltproc (that's the second time
I get an indication about such a possible problem), in that case:
   - the way to report bugs is indicated at 
   - give me a way to fetch the input data too so I can debug this

 If it's not xsltproc, it's still a better idea to contact directly
the appropriate channel rather than posting on xml-dev,
