OK, now we're getting somewhere. Slipping in a reply to another message, I'm quite familiar with some of the web pages (e.g. http://www.oasis-open.org/cover/ & http://www.finetuning.com/) that provide lists of (mostly SGML) transformation tools. But they don't cover things like "Python's XML toolkit is much higher level than OmniMark"; I would have expected the opposite. I've been watching Python from afar for quite awhile; maybe it's time to download it. (I suspect that would be easier for me than DSSSL.) ... In case the list moderator is suspicious: Maybe I should have called this thread "short-term alternatives to XSL". I'm a big supporter of XSL -- I just need something more powerful than the current working draft. Still, I can take this thread off list if that's preferred. Any more thoughts on the "highest level" alternative to XSL? Scott XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
