   RE: [xml-dev] Co-operating with Architectural Forms

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Another use for AFs is for internationalisation.This follows 
directly from the ability for each party to maintain their 
own syntax. The AF mapping here is from the foreign language 
version to the original.

Obviously this can also be done with XSLT, but I thought 
I'd throw it out.


An interesting paper: 

"APEX is a non-validating generic architecture engine written in XSLT" [1]



[1]. http://ats.nist.gov/xsltoolbox/apex/index.html

p.s. I've got a (rough) stylesheet that'll accept Cowan's 
AFNG and generate a second stylesheet to perform the 
architectural processing. Perhaps I'll call it the Formatron or 
something :)
