Hmm, I hadn't realized that was still a requirement. Firefox can't 
handle the DTDs, but it looks like Chromium still can?

So I didn't make the decision to use EXSLT lightly, but here are the 
things I (thought I) needed:

- the ability to split up the override strings (str:split())
- the ability to join up all the override classes and get the set of the 
ones that were different (set:distinct())

Once I decided I didn't know how to do those two things in any 
maintainable way (I'm not an XSLT guy), I added func: and exslt: to 
clean up and make things more readable. Figured I might as well make use 
of Xalan if I was coupling to it anyway. :D

Any ideas on how to turn that into vanilla XSLT 1.0 are more than 
welcome! (Or if you want to check in fixes directly, the backport branch 
is ^/httpd/httpd/branches/trunk-override-index .) My primary goal is 
zero duplication of any of the directive documentation -- the page 
should index all that by itself.
