I'm SURE I am misunderstanding something. What I get when I visit
http://server:port/admin/stats....wait a minute, I just went to /stats,
instead of /stats.xsl, and I see what you guys mean...:)
So there is a page "stats", which exists virtually, and a page
"stats.xsl", that I kept linking to. So, minus ".xsl", I get the pure
generated XML file.
NOW I GET IT! :)
Thanks a lot for all that commented, but I THINK there should be a
clarification on THIS point. Am I the only one to have been duped by
