Yeah this XML/XSLT stuff is designed to give a serious
seperation of concerns in the web development envirion.
The approach has been taken to the nth by the cocoon project
from apache http://cocoon.apache.org but that may be over kill for
what you are at.
If you go for an SQLXML/XSLT approach give me
a shout off list if you need any assistance on

Hmm. Mad, I didn't think it could do that. But yes, I'm looking for
something that'll keep code and data structure separate. So, I can add new
fields, and never have to change the code.
