The work on XSL was started by Jon Bosak, who put a lot of effort into DSSSL and led the informal DSSSL-o profile group. All three of DSSSL's editors (Sharon Adler, Anders Berglund, and James Clark) sit on the XSL WG; one co-chairs it, and another edits half of the XSL spec. How this disrespects, rather than learns from, DSSSL eludes me. -Chris -- <!NOTATION SGML.Geek PUBLIC "-//Anonymous//NOTATION SGML Geek//EN"> <!ENTITY crism PUBLIC "-//O'Reilly//NONSGML Christopher R.
