Egad, there were (at least) two sentences, possibly three depending on how you infer sentence closure and whether start and end parentheses are omissible and whether an exclamation mark implicitly closes a parenthetical statement. There were five assertions 1) If you need transformation, then you don't really have any choice about whether to use CSS or XSL 2) there is also no competition 3) CSS can't even handle a simple cross-reference 4) nor should it be extended to! 5) It's good at what it does The truth or fality of each can be argued to some extent independently. I would argue 1) False (transformation can be a separate step from styling) 2) True (meet different needs, different target platforms) 3) Depends which version of CSS 4) Depends (crystal ball broken) 5) True -- Chris XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
