In other words, no one hears about "xml stylsheets" and says "that's sounds cool. I wonder how I use them..." and instead "XSLT? That sounds cool... search > learn > discover => Oh, cool... I can invoke a transform using a processing instruction. How do I do that?" at which point they might search for it (though chances are good that if they've gotten that far into XSLT they own a book from Dr. Kay, Jeni Tennison, etc. so will look it up in that book rather than search for it.)

In other words, comparing "XSLT" and "xml stylesheets" is like comparing "XSLT" and "xsl:apply-templates".
