Hi Simon,

I figured that what was more attractive were the things that you
could call "added value" on HTML conversions such as multiple
columns (took me ages to get that right) and tables of contents
(still not happy with that one).

Just to read you right. Your point is that giving examples like doing
multi-columns or table of content are good examples to give you some preview
of the language power. I am right?

So, if I synthesize the last (very good and refreshing posts) about learning

a) start with a very easy example like Paul Prescod did
b) show more powerful scripts like multi column or table of content

I agree with you that Hybrick is a good tool to see the transformed

So, do you think that having a tool that shows directly the result is a good

Up to now for on-line rendition we have:
a) Hybrick (do native rendition of DSSSL FO objects)
b) the SGML/XML Kit that adds on-line rendition with DSSSL for XML/SGML on
IE 5 (not yet on Mozilla, its too unstable, we have to stabilize and
integrate netlib)
