DSSSL extensions for XSL

I've designed and implemented some experimental extensions to DSSSL to
support XSL. The idea is that with the addition of these extensions
DSSSL provides a superset of the semantics of XSL for flow object tree
construction.  These extensions include:

- support for imperative programming (including limited side-effects)

- extended element patterns

- style rules

- flow object macros.

You will probably need to read the XSL spec to understand these

Note that there is no support for XSL syntax, nor for the XSL HTML/CSS
flow objects.

A description of these extensions is available at


An experimental version of Jade that supports these extensions is
available at


Win32 binaries are at


You must use a -2 option to enable the extensions.

This version of Jade is not suitable for production use: implementing
these new features has involved substantial changes to Jade, which have
probably introduced bugs.  These extensions are experimental and
unofficial; they may change or disappear entirely.
