I can't measure the numbers and nor can anyone else. Clearly there are an
awful lot of technologies out there and there's a vast spectrum: there are a
few like Java and ASP that are perhaps seen in 30% of web shops, there are
others that are found in less than 1%, and XSLT is somewhere between those
extremes. But usage is certainly above a critical mass, and I'm more
interested in quality than quantity. It is after all a special-purpose

When I read the mass of uneducated newbie questions (and there are other
forums that see far more naive questions than this one does) I'm more
concerned about people's inability to describe a problem clearly than about
their inability to code apply-templates.
