Writing up a paper describing why XML/XSL might be a "good thing" for
intranet development, so I'm getting into the usual trying to get the
reader to grok XML, and I started thinking about the discussion held
recently on the list about CSS and XML, and then on top of this my mind
cast back to some TCL script I was looking at last night (my mind really
wanders when I'm bored)... and I thought how it all might have been

If we hadn't have had those sharp little brackets with SGML, but more
traditional expression of containment, we might have wound up with...

html {
     head {
          script {type: text/JavaScript} {
               function init {} {

          style {type: text/css} {
               body {
                    color: white;
                    background-color: black;
     body {onLoad: [init]} {
          h1 {A Flight Of Fantasy}
          p {Some text...}

...if mark-up had of gone this way XSL might look like...

xsl:template {document title} {
     h1 {

What can I say, I'm a fan of curly braces...

Sorry, all wildly off topic, and of no practical purpose, just hit the
delete button and put it down to end of the week stress :)

Have a nice week-end.
