RE: [xml-dev] [Off topic: lessons learned] Re: [xml-dev] Why is there an "S" in XSLT?

The group that created the markup standards was originally two groups
fighting for the authority to create hypertext standards.  On one side were
the people who thought of hyperlinks as relationship objects.  The other
thought of them as abstract style objects.  In the end, transformation was
the single big idea from the style group.  From the relationship group came
the notion that addressing and linking are usefully separable concerns.
Both groups lost to HTML and CSS initially.  Then there was a revolution
called XML where everything old was new again.
