A Bill to Open PACER

Clone the repository and open openpacer_bill.xml in a browser.

See the dtd for more explanation of fields.

To make an HTML version of the bill, on the command line, use xsltproc:

xsltproc ./billres.xsl ./openpacer_bill.xml > openpacer_bill.html

(This will spit warning messages, but will work. Blame the GPO.)

xsltproc is already installed in OS X and most Linxux distros, but get it for other OS's here: http://xmlsoft.org/XSLT/xsltproc2.html
