I don't think 'hype' is the problem at all. The 20% part of XSLT is easy to
learn too, so learning curve is not the problem either. The problem is that
there is no real need to learn XSLT. Observe that:
3. Learning an API like DOM is far easier to learn a new declarative
language like XSLT.
4. Once you learned DOM, there is no real need to learn XSLT.
While DOM-based solutions are harder to implement and maintain, there are
plenty of people available with DOM expertise. This is not true for XSLT.
combination will be the preferred method of implementation.
