Hi Liam,

Your comment on DSSSL is quite interresting. I guess you probably used Jade.
As you know, OpenJade is now Jade's successor and your experience may help
us improve the OpenJade package. Because i do not want to pollute the XSL
list with DSSSL stories, please e-mail to me personnaly, so that we can
understand the weak spots of Jade that we can improve in OpenJade.

Heh, that's what Groveware's product does, using Java and DSSSL.

Ken's solution is less than 1% of the size of the Groveware DSSSL, but
we had a full user interface and generated table cells that spanned rows
for events lasting more than an hour (or whatever).

In the end, we found that DSSSL didn't really scale up -- it got too
hard to mantain.  I'm not surehow XSL will faer here, but probably it's
important to use some external mechanism to keep things modular.
