For better or worse, ECMAScript is already a standard and >browsers already implement it. Please remember that not all styling runs in browsers. And even in the browser arena, ECMAScript isn't the only language in play. The Right Answer would be an API that allows _multiple_ languages to be plugged in, if that can be done. Among other things, that increases the odds of being able to talk to other software systems if you need to do something _really_ obscenely complex in your styling (such as using the data to generate a reference to a dynamically-created bitmap). ______________________________________ Joe Kesselman / IBM Research Unless stated otherwise, all opinions are solely those of the author.
