Just a note that for the time being we should always give the .org.uk 
form of the above.  When one uses the *.org/wiki/ the apache 
passthrough proxy makes it look like your IP address is that of the 
Virginia Server (jefferson.village.virginia.edu).  Th 
problem with this is that it is impossible to ban spammers using this 
IP address without banning everyone else who might come via 
*.org/wiki.  This is why the link on the www.tei-c.org navbar has been 
changed to the UK version.  Unless viriginia takes over the hosting of 
the mediawiki wiki, then we should always give the org.uk form for now 
when referring to the wiki.

Yeah, the way it has been categorized has always bothered me a bit. 
I'm less bothered about whether a script is XSLT1 or XSLT2.  I'm also 
wary of over categorisation.  I think I'd prefer just very descriptive 
names, all categorised alphabetically together, and then more 
description on the page about expected input/output/etc.  If we get 
over 50 stylesheets (there are currently 15) then maybe some more 
categorisation would be necessary.
