My latest version has that aspect sorted.

I've had a couple of suggestions (e.g. links) for improving it
for the ref card usage.

It also raised the issue (for the ref card) which *should* be there,
which shouldn't.

My (original) aim was to have those top level elements from which to
select, and not include all the others that could come almost anywhere,
but this has been questionned.

I have a list of 'missing' elements (4.2 version), but am unsure
which way to go, hence I'm seeking guidance.

After the Mulberrytech refcard (for xslt) I'm still chasing a max
of two sides. Presently up to 1 generous side, so more could go on.

Suggestions welcome.
