And sure you can transform XML input docs to SVG or to LaTeX,
Mathematica... but i cannot think anyone claiming that XSLT draw as SVG,
print as LaTeX or simbolically integrate expressions.

Sure also you can ***introduce*** JS and other stuff into the XSLT
template and the final doc will contain the JS code managing the DOM for
the up-down navigation menu. But the dinamical menu is being managed via

That i said is that you cannot use XSLT (at least 1.0) for the menu in the
_final_ doc,  you _may_ use JS.

Therefore here XSLT is lacking functionality. Is not?

---- DATA -----

function openMenu(itsId){
  document.getElementById(itsId).style.visibility = "visible";
function closeMenu(itsId){
  document.getElementById(itsId).style.visibility = "hidden";


<a id="topPrimaryMenu1" ... onmouseover="openMenu('navigationZone1')">
navigation menu| </a>

What is XSLT counterexample if any?
