You can't have XSP without the <xsp:page> element.  You can't use logicsheets
without XSP.  It's that simple.

Also, I do not see how your suffix selector can a) know how to test for the
filesystem extension quicly and b) be easier to use....

I am trying to get away from selectors altogether.

Yup.  I don't know why, but I gues we have to live with people making
