No, that's where this thread started - that we need a mechanism other than 
using XSLT variables, to construct the path to another XSLT file, in a 
platform-specific way.

'uname -s'?  I don't know what the user wanted to key off of, but there are 
any number of techniques one can use to determine the root of the 
stylesheets, on the system in question.

Ha ha - so true!!  Maybe they didn't worry so much about job security, after 
Gödel's proof!  ^_^  R. W. Hamming wrote some great stuff, including 
_Numerical Methods for Scientists and Engineers_, and a good intro book on 
Digital Filters.

BTW, I love your email address - "All hail the Leader"!
