Of course I completely disagree with this statement. I think it would be
quite easy for me to locate such individuals. And it's statements such as
this that lead me to believe that there is an honest misunderstanding of just
how prevalent the usage of XSLT is within the larger development communities
of the world.
If any of you have a moment and wouldn't mind sharing with the Opera
developers your own feelings on the above my hope is that this will aid in
providing a better understanding as to just how misguided such a belief truly
is, while at the same time encouraging them to take this matter much more
seriously than they seem to believe they need to.
I also wholeheartedly that the document() function isn't being
used. I use the document() function alot. It is very useful
in chunking into individual HTML files, creating external glossaries,
indices, etc. A recent use is create SCORM packages.
Almost every XSLT that I write includes the document() function for
