you're definitely missing the point, andy.  who said the output
had to be html, or xml, or was to be read by a browser?  it's none
of the transformation engine's fscking business what the output
format looks like; it's sole job is to take valid input and *create*
the output according to its instructions -- however poorly-designed
they may be.  tools that try to be smarter than a competent user
get up my nose, quite.
