+1 as well.

There are tons of general stylesheets that can be created:

for example, the "xml prettyprinter": transforms general XML into
IE5-style dynamic tress using DHTML.

James (Tauber) maintains www.xslinfo.com and he wanted to host such a
repository... but maybe we should do it here to get better audience.
