Remember to keep a copy of any edited xsl reports somewhere separate from your Civil 3D install location.
If you have other users, you will also need to get them pushed around.

Jason's issue with the double quote character in the video are because a double quote character is a reserved character in xsl. They must be escaped to be read literally. His work around works.

Special CAD Character Codes in Unicode like the ones employed in the video are important for more reasons than you want to know.
Read the Our Special Friends have Character post. It is an golden oldie. It contains a table of useful codes too.
