Agreed. I was disappointed with the XML-QL proposal and would sooner have used XSL to do a transformation. If XQL merges with XSL that would be even better, provided it doesn't become so complex that it makes an XSL processor too hard to write. You will probably still want to separate your query from the stylesheet, but it would be nice if the language was the same. What would you call that, "XTL"? Bill Ayers (BillA@xxxxxxxxxx)
