Subject Re: Forrestbot + SVN = mixed line-endings in HTML
Date Thu, 02 Mar 2006 23:17:32 GMT
Just a passing comment that may not have relevence.

In one of my user forums, someone who is much better at xslt than me stated 
not to
use <xsl:copy> with xslt 1.0 .

I have asked him why he thinks this, and pointed him to the XALANJ-656 issue 
see whether he thinks it relevent or not in this case.
