	Glad you are active again - and Happy Birthday! In addition to the
above items, could you also please consider a SYSTEM local location for
the dtd that defines XML Catalog documents? While xsltproc doesnt
reference the 'net for this DTD when it uses the catalogs, that is not to
say that there wont be another XSL processor or other XML programs that
need to reference this DTD.
