  • The zipped XSL files contain the XSL, CSS, and GIF files (images, java script, and CSS file) used to display the available return families (720, 94x, 990, 1040, 1041, 1065, 1120, 2290, 8849, etc).
  • When the 'zip' files are 'unzipped', the user should go with the default saved path names (unless they want to change the path references in CommonPathRef.xsl).
  • The XSL file 'populateTemplate.xsl' was modified to be compatible with Microsoft's XML parser. The original version of this file is in sub-directory 'OrigVersion'.
