Re: Advocate for C# .NET + 100% XSLT Processing
Hmmm.... Thats deep man. Similarily, I package most everything into an xml object, so like the querystring and form vars, they are packaged together with data that I have queried from the database, which might include many different datasets. This is also thrown one time at the XSLT Transformer. Ahhh... so yah, I have ViewState enabled on my site ; ) Karl..
