I guess what I should have said was "Why not use CSS then". If we're
talking about an XSL that doesn't do transformations then it's CSS you
should use. The perl example I guess was a bad idea, but I just meant what
we seemed to be talking about was tag matching/replacing with
programmability. CSS2 covers that.
