Maybe this isn't the best place for this question, but I don't know
where else to ask it. If someone can give me a better place to post
questions regarding general NMAP usage, I'll be glad to do so.

When viewing the XML file output of NMAP, the stylesheet seems to cause
some information within the output to not display properly. For example,
this is part of the display after running my scan:

Nmap scan report for
Host is up (0.19s latency).
161/tcp closed snmp
161/udp open   snmp    SNMPv1 server (public)
| snmp-sysdescr: Cisco IOS Software, Catalyst 4500 L3 Switch Software
(cat4500e-ENTSERVICESK9-M), Version 12.2(53)SG, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc3)

However, when viewing the XML file through Word, IE or any other
application that utilitizes nmap.xsl, all of the information on lines
that start with the pipe are not displayed. It defeats the purpose of me
running the scan with the SNMP info if it will not show up in the
standard XML display.

Any suggestions, or is this a bug?

Thanks in advance!
