There has been a recent forum of opined discussion found through: http://www.xml.com/xml/pub/1999/05/xsl/EdNote.html I have submitted another article for XML.com where I offer that although the same solutions may, indeed, be solved by different languages, that doesn't mean there can't be different languages to solve the same problem using different approaches. Check out XML.com for a future issue with the article "Vive la différence!". >Html can be produced (and often is) >without xsl, but I don't see any other way to add groff markup and >remove the original. If you mean the print-oriented (though not print-restricted) XSL formatting objects and semantics (à la unix groff formatting), then yes, these offer new features not previously available in other defined formatting semantics such as CSS. But for many people, that subset offered by CSS will be sufficient for their needs to paint a browser screen using XSLT for transformation. ......... Ken -- G.
