well yeah, that's what i want :) but for some reason
<xsl:include> and <xsl:import> didn't appear to actually be
bringing the contents of the included/imported file into the
stylesheet tree. was working under time pressure last night
and had absolutely no idea how to debug xalan. is there a
verbose tracing mode for it? i had absolutely no idea how to
see what was going on in there!

wow, i really need to get a better handle on this
syntax. that path is somewhat of a mystery to me. where is
xslt for dummies? trying to learn from the spec isn't
working terribly well.
