Thanks.  That was nifty overview for a newby like 
me.

I notice a seeming contradiction between slide 9 which
says:

"If a document isnít well-formed, or is invalid, or 
isnít Namespace-conformant -- It doesnít have an 
Infoset"

and slide 13 which says:

"XSLT will properly be understood as mapping from one
Infoset to another".

If a stylesheet emits PostScript, then surely its
XSLT can't be thought of as a mapping between
infosets.

A hypothetical alternative to XSLT which only mapped
infosets would surely be safer and faster than XSLT.
