Hi Guy,

I've maintained from the start that XSL is a direct competitor for ASP. The
reason why I assert this is because of the speed with which I was willing
to bail out from heavy usage of ASP to using XSL, leaving ASP just as the

If I could as you suggest access and COM interfaces from XSL then I would
look at dropping ASP completely.

I'm not 100% sure as to the state of play with script within the MS XSL
parser, as I haven't had chance to play with it fully. It doesn't however
seem to be on a par with the IE, or IIS scripting hosts.

As to whether these moves are deliberate on the part of MS, or the result
of simple expedience with what has to be seen as an interim solution for MS
with regard to XSL (pretty much as XML was in IE4) ::shrug:: time will
tell... is MS ready to throw ASP away?... I hope so :)

I agree
