Daniel, you misunderstood me. I was exactling saying that _mozilla_ XSLT
implementation is probably not complete ... 

I certainly dont think GNOME should use mozilla implementation.

(I thought Shamhms was referring to mozilla XSLT when saying "not sure
if this is in the platform" because I doubt he'd not know that libxslt
is in the GNOME platform)
