RE: Separating content from presentation
Umm, at the risk of appearing antedeluvian, xml is also used for [gasp] documents... if you are indeed pulling information out of an RDBMS, then you can bury the slicing, dicing and rearrangement in the SQL. If you are putting online help into a bound users manual, or reprinting journal articles in a book, well, you can use XML (sgml), or you can key it again. (Or, because humans are much smarter that computers, you can send it out looking like junk.)

Subject: Re: Separating content from presentation True, but server-side script has had this capability for years. I've seen case studies on MSDN where a database-driven site was rewritten using SQL 2000 and XSLT, but I haven't seen any compelling reason for scripters to switch to XSLT.
