The former is true in the abstract but not in the concrete
as anyone who has tried to process XML with pre-XML
SGML tools will tell you.
The latter has no basis in fact that I am aware of other
than that they both share the same general approach.
The same could be said of a lot of acronym tuples
(GIF,BMP), (MP3,WAV) etc. I don't think it
If anything, XSLT is what you get if you take
the part of DSSSL that was never implemented and
re-engineer it from scratch.
