Nevermind, I got it to work. IE 6 was refusing to download the new stylesheet, even when prompted to do so. That's a strange quirk ... anyone else have this problem? By the way, I simply forgot to close an empty tag.
I scoured the article here and several others, and I still get errors when I try to make attribute values from my XML data using XSL. I'm trying to make a link from a piece of data called "link" and I want the link text to be "title". Below is my XSL stylesheet.
