   Re: [xml-dev] Schema Compatability - was Re: [xml-dev] incompatible uses

Personally this kicks a$$ over my suggestion so my vote is with this
-- unless someone else can suggest and donate something better?

I like your suggestions here Eric.  It seems that several times over
the last 6 months the topic of developing a more standardized library
of reusable templates has come up in conversation with various
community members.  In fact I have been compiling the Xamelon library
off and on for a couple years, intended to act in this same capacity. 
Theres obvious a seperation between the code library and the Schema
project so why dont we focus http://xmlschemata.org/ on the suggested
Schema project and then simply make the Xameleon.org Template Library
the foundation for this as I already have a HUGE amount of this
library developed from the standpoint of the web-based check-in,
check-out, logos, etc...  I would hate to see that all go to waste so
if you all are cool with it I will simply begin to activate some of
the stuff that already exists.

I do know that the template library idea has always been validated as
a good thing but for various reasons I think its easy to suggest but
difficult to convince your mind to do all the leg work to make
something like this happen and happen right. Without a doubt at one
point or another we have all developed a one off stylesheet that was
fine-tuned to a specific purpose  and then set it aside and forgot
about.  Isn't it spring cleaning time in the Northern Hemisphere? [Im
not dissin' the "southerners" here, just going with what I know for
now to try and justify things from some sort of cosmic "God made this
happen" fateful load a crap -- hey, crap like this sales, bottom line

Ok, this gives me an idea...  Uh, oh... well, too late... The
development of this idea already has over three characters (theres a
total of 7 so I cant even say "closeadamnnuff" to get out of it at
this point) of the first line written so its too late now [going by
the three character rule which is to say that as long as you have
written less than three characters then you have never really
committed yourself to this code file so its ok not to develop it --
what, youve never heard of it?  Hmm... thats wierd, I thought
everybody lived by the three character rule ;)

BTW... this suggested library should have as its foundation Dimitre's
FXSL project.  Doing so will help encourage us all to start using the
most powerful yet underused library that brings to XSLT things like
the source of the "whatinthe" look found [Dimitre's explanation as to
the functions in the library used and how follow directly after the
"stunned" photo] here >

I think I may be able to develop the perfect mechanism to make the
submission of new code and access to the library code as simple as...
well, you'll see...  Give me 30-60 and I'll show ya what Im talking

cheers :)
