So are you saying you can manage without the XSLT stage? Perhaps I should 
explain what I had in mind a bit more with that - I guess I would call it a tee, a pipeline

element with one input and two outputs. The input is passed unchanged on through 
to the next stage in the pipeline. But it is also passed through an XSLT before links 
are gathered from it.

Are you saying you can manage without this?

And it sounds as if it could be a trivial solution.
