I'd really like to figure out why this isn't working in Mozilla.  Is it 
just the apache docs, or is mozilla not working at all for xslt at the 
moment?  Personally, I've had near zero success with it for a long time.

Which method are you using?  The "recommended" technique is, 
which calls ant.  It should not regenerate docs that don't change.

site and httpd-site use anakia, while the docs use xslt.  I am 
relatively transformation-agnostic.  I'm sure the existing stuff could 
be implimented in anakia, but then you would lose the ability to preview 
in browsers (which still works, at least, in IE6).  I have no objections 
to anyone working to improve the transformation system, just as long as 
we don't move backwards.

Feel free to bitch.  Just do it constructively ;-)
