It's not worth explaining because it isn't necessary anymore :-)

Done. Well, different and general anyway. Better, I suppose, is

The 1.38 stylesheets, released today, do it all differently and
predicates should work the way you'd naturally expect.

I'm sure there's room for improvement in the stylesheets. If you
describe what you want and what markup you want to use, I'll see what
I can suggest.
