Re: Why is there an "S" in XSLT?
I might write any arbitrary functionality in a XSLT stylesheet. For e.g., I might add two numbers in a XSLT stylesheet. "Stylesheet" is a generic term given to the grammar: <xsl:stylesheet etc .. </xsl:stylesheet> My personal opinion is, that the term "Stylesheet" is fine and caters to all sorts of things we can write in this grammar.
