I have to do a research to my boss involving a lot of XML technologies to try to define a path for future developments. My aim is to try to define the most platform independent solution i can, away from MS and if possible not very Java dependent. So i'm looking to XML/XSL, and since you are all such a great guys (~violin music~) i'll ask for your advice. I've been looking at XML Data Islands but don't understand what it is really. Is it a MS only feature or is it a W3C definition? Can i treat XML Data Islands with XSL? The aim here is to have portions of a html page been updated without a trip to the server, refreshing the all page. I saw here in the list people asking about building tree-like menus out of XML. Are there any examples i can show my boss? What good IDE's are for XML/XSL, with visual capabilities? And if any of you has some ideas about XML/XSL (and CSS/CSS2) techniques toward a platform-independent solution please give me some points. Thanks to all for your kindness (~violins again~).
