Geekiness

I was doing some research on 3rd-party packages used in our software, and putting the results into a table with tbl, groff, and ms. It got to be too much information for a table, so I rewhacked the information into XML, and then wrote a stylesheet that emitted tbl with embedded ms commands and embedded PS callouts with pdfmarks, so when it was run through xslt, then tbl, then ms, then groff, then Distiller, it produced a PDF with hotlinks!
