Re: [xml-dev] Topics of keen interest to me ... how about you?

I find it interesting that "data driven" can someone how be viewed as in opposition from giving the user a better UI.  In the end, the metadata that should be used to build user interfaces is still data and exposing that as early and directly as possible and giving the users ways to manipulate that data is the best way to build a powerful user interface.  Exposing it directly as XML is probably not part of that scenario, but XSLT on top of XML can be directly below the layer that is exposed to the user and is very flexible and powerful.

Ah, bullshit.  It's still about wrangling users and their data.  All this talk about "data driven" comes across like excuses to get out from under UI responsibilities.    Nobody like the dirty work of massaging the first/last mile (yard?) of effort that faces the users.  But failure to do so makes the rest pretty much pointless.
