DSSSL is an ISO standard. W3C doesn't get to rewrite it. However, ISO standards are subject to periodic review and it is entirely possible that experience with XSL could be used to produce an improved, revised version of DSSSL provided that some folks have the interest and dedication to do the work. I don't see XML as being "disrespect to" SGML for example. -- Chris XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
