Re:  XSLT 2.0 courses?
Dear Liam,

Who says I am uncertain? I merely ask you to consider the question.

Posing it should not be taken to imply that I believe either in
"self-commenting code" or that I think the best measure of what makes a
good path is its string length (either long or short). As for your dogma
that the code should be written with its future readers and maintainers in
mind -- I agree with that so much, I might have come up with it myself. :-/

Cheers, Wendell
