I realize we all have our own jobs to do, and that we have to do them on certain platforms. I also know that oppression is a serious problem around the world. Oppression is what we see in many parts of the world today, we also see it in a couple network operating systems, and related software suites. This software makes it hard for other software to co-operate with it by not following the rules set forward by a neutral authority, and we all know what happens when something or someone doesn't follow an aggreement or a standard - there is a disruption. Sometimes the disruption results in a web page not being rendered, while in other cases it involves billions of dollars worth of missiles and bombs being deployed against the offender. To many, tolerance is oppression. Two examples of people like this last names are Gates and Milosevich (sp?) nuff said. <apology> Sorry to the rest of the list for going so horribly off topic. </apology> > > <Comment> > Yes, there appears to be quite a bit of momentum in the perl community to > get X*L modules out there, but more promising for widespread use is Cocoon. > I can't wait to play with it, I just have to recompile Apache for mod_jserv > ! > > I more or less wanted to know what others are doing, their aproaches, etc. > </Comment> > > <reply> > I like your last sentence.

Thats why I am on the list. ________________________________ Matthew MacKenzie Intolerance/OS Bigotry Specialist XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
