Guy, Paul makes an excellent point since most of the XSL processors only implement the "XTL" or tree construction portion of the XSL WD anyway. I am in favor of splitting the the spec or at least having a further clarified specification that treats the transformation and formatting as two separate entities. Most of the implementors of the XSL processors apparently have felt this way from the start in my opinion since some are working on the Transformation process and others are working on the "FO" section. --Keith Paul Prescod wrote: > > Guy_Murphy@xxxxxxxxxx wrote: > > > > Hi. > > > > Yes I would rather see 100 XTL languages rather than see XSL sullied. > > Sullied is a pretty vague word.
