What I meant was that it allows people to share documents with needing to agree on the same syntax. You can produce stuff in Docbook, and I can use it with tools for viewing HTML, and there's no problem because XSLT lets us bridge this gap. Company A can use one set of GIs, and Company B can use a different set. They can differ on the old element-vs-attribute question, and whether all lowercase is better than CamelCase. Useful interchange of documents is only slightly impaired, as each can use XSLT to translate to the "local standard" representation. XSLT enables everyone to use the syntax they like. -Wayne Steele _________________________________________________________________ Join the world?s largest e-mail service with MSN Hotmail. http://www.hotmail.com
