Re: [xml-dev] XML support in browsers?

Why do people despise XSLT so much?

Is it people that hate functional and markup at the same time, packed in one combo of hatred?

There is no doubt that people typically either love XSLT or hate it: that's
easily confirmed by seeing what people are tweeting. The latter category
tend to be those who hoped they could pick it up learning by example in a
spare couple of hours, and were disappointed to discover that the concepts
are too deep for that to be possible, plus of course some who rejected it at
first sight on aesthetic grounds, or who use it resentfully because they
were told to use it in preference to their own favourite technology.

Incidentally, twitter led me to this wargaming site as an example of
something built using client-side XSLT:
