Point well taken. Please read my follow-up. Unlike you, I have been
around this area for a LONG time -- over the last year various book
duties, and projects have kept me away -- but none-the-less XSLT is more
or less my life and XSL-List has been a part of that for a long time.
With this in mind, these conversations will happen from time to time,
but their rare. The reason I took a personal interest in this
originally is that this is one area in the world of XSLT that I have a
fairly substantial base of personal experience and expertise, and as
such felt there was an obvious need to make sure that there was a lot
more too this than what had been brought to the surface, and having
quite a bit of exposure and experience to other, non XSLT, but still
XML-based langauges, its important for us all to have an understanding
of all that is going on. Some of us already do, some dont, so
unfortunately that means info is being passed to some that already know it.
All of this said, again, see my last post, but also recognize that I
have a personality you will either come to love or come to hate, but in
the end it should be pretty apparent that this is all about building and
promoting XSLT as a language. Sometimes that can lead to "setting the
record staright" posts.. this one in particular hit a sore spot for
various reasons, something of which I have apologized for.
Welcome to Paradise! :D

given the sheer amount of words that you bestow on this list, i wonder
why you don't take the time to grab a coffee and relax a little,
instead of transforming a perfectly valid and well-written (if
debatable) counter-argument into a flame-war full of personal abuse.
there are certainly places on the web where such behaviour might be
appropriate, but even though i've been enjoying this list for a
limited time one i'm sure this is not one of them.

You've taken your misguided opinion, "generalized" it, and used this
