RE: killing xslt
-----Original Message----- From: Oleg Tkachenko By the way, here is more detailed explanation - "Why You Won't See XSLT 2.0 or XPath 2.0 in the Next Version of the .NET Framework" by Dare Obasanjo, http://blogs.msdn.com/dareobasanjo/archive/2004/05/13/131166.aspx <quote>In the decision to go with XQuery over XSLT 2.0, Mark is right that we felt that developers would prefer the familiar procedural model and syntax of XQuery to the template based model and syntax of XSLT 2.0. Most developers working with XSLT try to use it as a procedural language anyway, and don't really harness the power of templates. </quote> Rather condescending? or is it that the clever people use XSLT and the rest use xquery because it doesn't hurt their heads? regards DaveP -- DISCLAIMER: NOTICE: The information contained in this email and any attachments is confidential and may be privileged.
