Essetially what i have is as follows
	<Employee ServiceID="1">
			various history stuff
			varoious leave stuff
			varoiuos discipline stuff

I have group of users that have access to all the
information about employees.  Within this group of
employees I have a sub set that have permission to
see disciline details.

when the user hits the web site the user is Authenticated
and it is known what type of user it is.
Based on this knowledge I want to
If user has access to discipline
	Show Discipline
	Dont show discipline

Weve thought of using Entity References to date if the
discipline file to which the entity refers does not exist
then we get no XML what so ever when we actuall want
every thing else but the discipline or except the entity
that is referenced. (Ohh im using IE5)  This is not suitable

Im thinking maybe I could write an IE5 behaviour that retrieves
the discipline xml parses it and adds it to the employee xml if
it is available to this user and then retransforms.

Problem with this is i dont know how to acheive it quite.  Im aware
I can assign behaviors to xml but are they activated (or how can 
they be activated) when parsed into a ActiveX xml dom?

Does anyone have any suggestions?
