Perhaps an example that *requires* both XSL would
satisfy the skeptics...perhaps not :-(
Requires may be too strong, but I hate to think of
doing the job without both tools.
We are using XSL (thanks James for XT!) in a pipe-lined
architecture to take "documents" from specifications to
full-blown presentations that eventually end in either
HTML or PDF (via FOP).
There are at least three stages in the pipe-line and a fork
depending on final rendering, which all run on a server under
that gets broken up into several pages in the HTML form. I
don't see how we could use CSS+DOM in these stages.
The final HTML is generated with CSS for presentation on
browsers and at this point has lost most of its semantics.
The PDF uses FOs and as far as I know isn't likely to be
supported by any kind of CSS or DOM structure.
My appologies if I missed the deeper meaning in all of
this fussing over a semantic web.
