Sure, it is easier for me because I have done it dozens of times, but even for someone who hasn't, what are the hard problems? I'm on the road, and I've got a novice programmer back at the office doing it in Python right now, so maybe I better check in with him. :) > > that has > > been solved with free software since before there was an XML. > > If you are into easy scripting language, Python... > > Sure, I could roll my own In what sense is using Python's built-in, carefully designed XML toolkit "rolling your own"? > So, I'm looking for alternatives to XSL that are > a bit higher level than conventional scripting languages. > > OmniMark LE has been suggested (I downloaded it and will take a look); > anything else? I don't think of Omnimark as high-level. I think of it as ultra low-level. It is focused on the nuts and bolts of the text. BTW, if you don't know Omnimark, I wouldn't suggest you learn it on a deadline. You'll have a lot more success using a conventional language that will build on your existing knowledge.

In 300 years, we will have filled up 16 earth-sized planets (roughly, our solar system). In 2300 years we will have filled up 200 billion earth-sized planets (roughly, our galaxy). Only one technology can save us: birth control. XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
