If it takes Tellico XML as input and outputs HTML, it can easily be a
report template. Drop it in your local template folder, described at

So you're not generating the HTML with xsltproc or anything like that, but
having the stylesheet within the Tellico XML file. Nice, whatever works for

By default, Tellico outputs XML in its own namespace. The XSLT has to
account for that, there are various ways of doing it. The part quoted uses
a default namespace for all entities. Alternatively, you'll see it used
with a namespace prefix like tc:

There are a few mirrors of the mailing list that you can search, though I
can't speak to their accuracy.
