This idea comes from the hope that Web servers will send XML with references to XSL stylesheets (as in, XSLT that transforms to XSLFO) which the browser will use to display the raw data - so that content and presentation are seperated "on the wire" to the client, making it easy to write clients that ignore the XSL reference and just pull out the raw data. So it's nothing new in terms of client/server architectures or application development - it's just new to the Web, which currently (still) provides almost all it's resources as human-only-readable HTML pages. > I'm thinking that being able to explain the root causes of these > misconceptions will help me in explaining to people why they ARE > misconceptions.
