Simple XSL to determine whats on now

Hi guys,

I've just subbed up the list, so hope there's someone out there reading
this :)

My first submission, and latest hack is at:

This very short stylesheet reports the programme(s) on at the current

It can report two programmers since one programme is consider to start
at 12:00 and the preceding one ends at 12:00 (as opposed to 11:59:59).

Linux usage:

  xsltproc --param TIME_NOW "'`date +%H%M`'" tvsearch.xsl bbc1.xml 

Windows usage:

  msxsl bbc1.xml tvsearch.xsl TIME_NOW="1930"

I don't know the Windows "get time now" command, sorry.

Hopefully, someone else will have a use for it!
