Let me start with a little clarification: the DSSSL spec is much like
the SGML spec in that it has many optional features. You could almost
consider the style and transformation languages to be optional features
because you do not have to implement one in order to implement the
other. I expect a "full" DSSSL implementation (e.g. one with all
optional features) soon after I see a complete SGML/HyTime
implementation (using the same definition of "full"), which is to say I
wouldn't hold my breath.

Henry has mentioned his implementation of the trans. lang. (I'm
salivating over here). Watch also for something from Alex at Copernican
Solutions. He's a smart guy and he has made many transformation language
