Internet Explorer. No support for the new CSS2 display properties, on
grounds that if you're doing XML, you really should be using XSLT.
This is probably true, although guessing why MS don't implement
standards is something of a black art.
Microsoft's expectation of XSLT for XML->WordML transformations has also
made some things (like present all new SALE elements in red) impossible,
while a CSS approach would have made such things pretty simple.
Is probably all that's needed to enhance an existing stylesheet with
XSLT is pretty much perfect for cases where you can't be bothered to do
more than map existing structures to XML.
I don't know what you mean here. If I write a document in docbook, or
xmlspec, and use xslt to generate html. (which is my normal mode of
operation) in what way "cant't I be bothered to do more than map
existing structures to XML."?
You obviously have something in mind here, but I have no idea what.
Unfortunately, putting those
transformations into separate processes creates a lot of brittleness, as I
think Word demonstrates nicely.
Not being a Word user, I wouldn't know, but I'll take your word for it
that Word demonstrates brittleness.
