Hi Nate!

Did you get an email from me concerning the IHAS project that you
wanted me to coordinate? I've been having a lot of problems with my
groupwise account so, I'm just making sure that I responded to your
request. I assumed that I didn't hear from you because you were on
vacation. Have you gone yet?

No rush on any of this from me, I'm just trying to be responsive. :)
Thanks! ah

We've noted the problem (it exists for the Xalan processor as well),
and
will fix the MODS3 stylesheet shortly.  Thanks for the suggested fix.

Andy,

Thanks for the note.  No I hadn't, since I was able to work around it
another way.  My main reason for my query was just to see if the
problem
was primarily MSXML parser related -- since it doesn't look like you
can
use the available MOD3 stylesheet without some modification.
