RE: Fw: Fw: W3C-transformation language petition
Hi Didier. Thanks for the reply, I am really pleased it struck a cord with somebody, and it seems exactly the same has occured with you as has been mulling over in my head... trying to look beyond print based documents. I originally started thinking along these line while looking over the new breed of "skinable" application after being impressed with WinAMP. For this reason you might find http://www.skinz.org of interest. Not necessarily for direct ideas but as an opertunity to look at ventures similar at least in root concept to that you outline. I was looking at some of the Win32 shell replacements when I started to think that if the desktop and windows where specified using a mark-up language life could be a lot sweeter, and the bounds of deliverable content stretched greatly.

So, maybe on the basis of that we decide it would be nice to have... <fo:window> ...content... </fo:window> </YourComment> <Reply> This is a very creative idea. Independently of if it is implemented with CSS (yes it can), DSSSL or XSL Fos. This is something useful. Up to now, formatting objects have been restricted to "print" Fo or look-alikes. Mozilla ZUL is using markups but a solution based on FO is cleaner. So to windows FO objects we should have also Toolbars, Dialogs, buttons, etc... Funny, you said that, I was experimenting this idea with DSSSL FOs.
