Ok. I was simply trying to understand it as an exercise in exploring
what Bosworth was alluding to: as I said, and the alternatives are?
Otherwise, I've no objections to the objects. :-) We built something
like that for the US Navy MID (circa '93/95). We got the bejesus beat
out of us by SGMLers who were enamored of HTML and the HTMLers who
didn't understand why it might be a good idea to script in the
same syntax as the content was marked. Times change and what
was once a dog can become a dog show champion. Taste, partially,
but also functionality when the desirability of it is realized.

Not a problem. I did look at the source, and view sourced the
stylesheet link. The stylesheet link was confusing me because I
expected it to be XSLT. The executes worked great.
