Thanks for bringing that to our attention, its certainly a good start
- do you know if the stylesheets and transformations are freely
available and where from.

It produces a good output but needs tweaking for our needs - not least
because it doesn't break after and tags so is very hard to read on one
line. This isn't too hard to get round though.
