Re: XML/XSLT for web templating

Before it was too old, XSLT was too new. In some places it's still

like it since "non-programmers" pick it up so readily and get so

Wendell, I never thought of that. That's a very interesting
consideration that you are making.
Obviously I can't offer advice to Alessandro since I don't know his
actual situation, but I think it might be worth his considering
just going with the flow. If they're allergic to XSLT, so be it:
don't spend your energies fighting border skirmishes. Chances are,
you can still find opportunities to use XSLT where it's especially
well suited, solve real problems, demonstrate simple solutions, use
it when enables doing things faster or better or otherwise
impractical. In the meantime, you're also gaining valuable
experience in other technologies, and hopefully making a few friends.
Thank you for your advice, I appreciate that, and yes, of course,
it's not worth to "fight", I agree with you. Still, I believe that
most of the "allergic reactions" I see are due to a lack of
information, and then, informing people is a good cause.... :)
Last, my own situation is probably better than how it can be for many
othesr, since I do have some weight in my organization, but I wish
that there was a easier way to reach consensus, and again,
information availability is key to that, I believe.
Thank you again,
