whoa nelly! I would take a bet on that!

I know that McGraw Hill and Pearson plc are standardizing on XML/XSL.
Between these two they own most publishers out there. If you do content
based stuff, then you would serve your interests MUCH better if you knew

There is also a belief (rightly or wrongly) that XSL is a more
sophisticated, elegant solution. It is much easier to sell AND get more
money than you could with a jsp solution, IMO. You can show clients
documentation from brilliant minds, powerhouse corps and what have you. Who
talks about jsp other than the devs who know it and have it mastered so they
don't see the value. Anyway, contact me if you want to place a bet :)
