Re: Associating DSSSL style sheets with documents
[Edward C. Zimmermann:]

| The problem with using .dsl as the map from the URL .extension is that

| DSSSL "style sheet" then one will either need to have a front-end
| server to manage this whole bit (why) or fill the place with symbollic

one-to-one correspondence between stylesheets and DTDs.  It is
possible to write a catch-all stylesheet that will work with documents
written to a number of DTDs, and conversely it's not only possible but
often desirable to create a number of stylesheets that are all
designed to work with documents written to a single DTD.

And then there's the fact that DTDs are optional in XML...
