RE: [xml-dev] When you create a markup language, what do yourparent elements mean? What do your children elements mean?

Would you state the meanings of each of those please? For example does this:

      <xsl:template ...>________</xsl:template>

mean object-property? That is, does it mean that "stylesheet" is an object and "template" is its property? If no, what does it mean?

It does?? That's rather a strange reading of that piece of code.

xslt uses many diffferent meanings of parent/child.
there isn't much in common in the relationships shown by
