Thanks for your replay.

But this will tie me up with a specific technology instead of begin adhering straight to standards and open tech. For sure this technology is one step ahead of the standard but unless is a standard by itself (which I doubt from the msgs coming to this list), will be difficult to see applications running smoothly in, lets say, at least 90% of the clients machines.

As I said, I've been playing a little bit (for sure not as much as you did guys) with the XML/XSLT technology and is time to wrap up and take in concern what I mention before, being able to deploy a site with minor environment problems, inmediate adherance to standards and simple maintenance.

I would suggest that you just download saxon ( ) and go through as many examples as possible, the architectural view will emerge with this intimate experience, deal with the axiomatic idiom of xml+xslt->xml parsing first, then layer from there....yes I know, if its hard to explain....then why....sometimes just doing is the quickest route between 2 points.

there are many 'grand' visions e.g. the architectural viewpoint you ask for, it depends on whom you are asking;for example those ( no offense ) older SGML'ers out there will no doubt have a document centric viewpoint ...or corba/dcom folk will no doubt be nodding their heads saying ahhhh SOA. 

One thing is certain, that xml and derived markups such as XSLT are an agent of change affecting said architectures.
