Re: The beginning of xslt?
The question that has always bothered me is whether or not the original intention of XSL:FO was to output to a variety of clients (including web browsers, mobile phones, etc.)and not just to print? well some of teh prginal people lurk on thi slist, but I think teh answer must be yes. ....And that perhaps it was just a question of waiting for the browser/software vendors to build clients that could read formatting objects? it's not clear to me whether there is a real difference in principle between "a browser that could read FO" and "a client side pipeline that reads FO, produces PDF and browses the PDF" whether the internal rendering model is FO or HTML/CSS or PDF, is just an internal implementation issue isn't it, if FO goes in one end and something visual and hyperlinked comes out the other, isn't that a browser?
