But you, Ken, you are a slave of the market.

Sad, but true.

You are forced to offer teaching in the areas they ask
for. If they ask for XML, you must teach them XML.


By the way, could you Ken explain what you say about DSSSL loosing ground
when new XSL versions appear?

I am anticipating more complex page models, powerful formatting objects and flexible properties to be available to support multiple flows, synchronizing constructs in the block progression direction, similar constructs to indirect sosofos, etc. With such facilities available in the XSL-FO semantics, one should be able to produce just about everything DSSSL can produce today with the complex page model.
