I don't see that there are some problems that are "too simple" for XSL. The simpler the problem, the more sense it makes to use XSL. We use XSL because it is: * standardized * declarative * optimizable * can be implemented in the heart of a repository * has many competing implementations We use Python because it is: * flexible * highly extensible * has a powerful standard library I'm told that these are reasons also to use Perl if you can stand it.
