That's XSLT. None of it allows anybody to do anything or prevents anybody from doing anything.
Perhaps it generates HTML which allows or prevents those things? If so, then you should be looking at that HTML. But we've had this conversation before, haven't we?

I'm having trouble understanding you Paul. I don't see all that much .html in my project in Eclipse. I have searched on all the .html that is present in my project and I don't see anything there that is that telling. This is code that I have inherited from someone else and I am still very much trying to sort it out.
I am attaching a screenshot of what I see in my package explorer in Eclipse Helios. Can you look at it and tell me where you think I should be looking? Or if this isn't helpful can you tell me what you mean?
Let me explain what I think might be happening. Of course this is just a guess, but it's a guess based on how I have seen systems working in real life.
You have a server where some kind of servlets are running. Or maybe they are called something else, but at any rate there's code running on a server. That code produces something which is transformed via XSLT into HTML, and that HTML is sent to the browser. At that point a person looks at the browser and does something like filling in a form or clicking on a link. And that user action causes a request to be sent to your server, where another servlet (or whatever) processes it. Probably it produces something which is transformed via another XSLT into HTML, and so on.
So to find out what is happening (which is the first step in finding out how to fix it when it happens wrong) you need to observe that process. Now Eclipse is not involved in that process at all, it's just a tool for creating the web application. So looking in Eclipse is useless.
You need to understand what server processes (servlets?) exist, how their data is transformed into HTML, and what that HTML is for. As you correctly observe, none of that HTML is in Eclipse. That's because the HTML is an output of the system. It isn't part of the programming. That's why I say you have to observe what's actually happening.
