We do not have a semantic Web anyway: at least not until there are
accepted and used controlled vocabularies installed. And there is a
of markup even within semantically-marked-up data that can usefully be
asemantic (if that is a word) (i.e., generic markup against uncontrolled
vocabularies: labels) or even non-semantic (i.e. processing).
Transforming <person style="bold"> to <xsl:fo variation="bold"
(that is not the correct syntax, dont flame me, it is just an example)
not convert the data away from being usable on the semantic web: if
is nothing to tie "person" into some controlled vocabulary, you didn't
"semantic markup" anyway.
