My thinking there is that the typical user doesn't care about a value
being decoded. All they need to know is that there was no search
result, for whatever reason. If you compile with debugging turned on
and run from the command-line you'll see output about an invalid
amazon2tellico.xslt file. I choose not to make that visible to the
user because my guess is that the large majority of users don't care
and don't know what to do about it anyway. :)
