There must be some interaction with the version of libxml2/php also,

xml/text as the bug report mentioned. 

Also, it doesn't work with cvsweb as I expected. Although I got it to
work by tweeking the php. I don't know if all cvsweb setups work like
this, I don't have much experience with them, but all I had to do for
ours was drop the .diff being added in the url being made in
get_viewcvs_diff_url. The other parts, rev/r1/r2/etc. appear to be

The patch has been applied to svn. Thanks a lot.

The better way to do it is to put all the javascript code in a .js file
and include it in the xsl file. However for small javascript it actually
