Re: MSXML abominations happening for a reason

So, sorry Mike, but I still think MS deserves a bashing for > not doing this properly. I wasn't defending Microsoft or anyone else; check the subject line of my post ("abominations"). I am actually just trying to extend the blame to include not only Microsoft but the W3C and the XSL WG for inventing specs that don't balance what is "right" with what the target audience -- people who want to style and present XML data, most often in the context of a web browser -- is able to handle (i.e., what is "easy"). They should have seen this coming because it is exactly what happened with HTML, when Netscape was the evil corporate monster extending and ignoring all the standards. - Mike ___________________________________________________________ Mike J.
