RE: Fw: Signing of XSL scripts

The host application for XSL will be the XSL processor. I understand that conformant XSL processors will implement a subset of standard ECMAScript together with some XSL specific built-in functions, giving no more access to the local system than ECMAScript in an HTML page. (Possibly less). Perhaps future XSL processors will be hosted by other applications, not only by browsers, (or by documents themselves hosted by browsers). But in that case too, I believe the XSL processor will at best have access to its hosting application, which itself will be subject to its own specific security model. A Java applet, for example, would not therefore be able to use XSL to gain any additional access to the local system... Boris Moore XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
