It also makes it slightly worrying - the fact that it's new means that it's less likely to catch on, IMHO. Many, many people are familiar with writing basic (or even BASIC) procedural code, which makes me think that whatever catches on in the field of small-scale webpage XML scripting is likely to be procedural. While I can see why a more declarative style might be appropriate for a large-scale project, these sorts of reasons are not the reasons why HTML caught on in the first place. -- Richard Lanyon (Software Engineer) | "The medium is the message" XML Script development, | - Marshall McLuhan DecisionSoft Ltd. | xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
