It was a long time ago, in idle conference chatter, but someone was talking
about building a simple generic XML->text file converter, that would
support block, inline, list, and table displays, as well as let you convert
elements or entitities to whatever formatting characters you needed.

I've pondered this a lot in a CSS context, but I don't think this had
anything to do with CSS or XSLT - and it was supposed to be a lot simpler
than XSLT.  It wasn't a scripting environment, either.

Does anyone else remember such a thing?
