Well  information can have negative value, so substract kngement from
you.  The more the noise visible internet have, the less usefull will
Theres also stuff that is valuable because is rare. Gold, Gems, are
good examples. A single website with a rare XYZ can be much more
valuable than zimbillions of websites with XYZ.
Example: a fresh (original) photo of paris no one know.

People that dont use XSLT:
* Wisiwyg designers (Dreamweaver/Frontpage) that dont need/dont
use/dont undertand XSLT
* PHP programmers already have a template engine: <? PHP ?>

People that use XSLT:
* Savy people.
* Java guys with amazing technologies (maybe overengineered)
