<rant subject="XSL">
Er, uh... is that why Sun and Adobe are putting up large sums of money to
inspire someone (anyone?) to implement the formatting objects end of it?

Am I the only one who gets email from people (mostly programmers) asking
for what the hell is going on in XSL?  The transform end seems to bug
programmers in particular, while the FO end bugs developers who thought
they'd already learned a style sheet language for the Web - _and_ print.

Oh well.  Just another Friday afternoon working with XML...
