It's too bad you missed the chance to ask the seminar presenter this

XML is a method of storing data in a text file in a standard, multi-level
form.  XSL is a language that can transform an XML file into an XML, HTML,
or text file following certain rules.  It has **no** visual components.

So no, XML/XSL can't do what you ask.  The nearest they would come would be
to produce HTML that does something like that.  I suspect the presenter
meant something much more general than what you thought.

I am new to XML/XSL.  Can anyone shine any light on this?

Some one said XML/XSL will replace Java Applet.   I heard this comment from
one of the presenter in a seminar.

I have one question related to this comment:

Can XML/XSL handle the Java AWT or Jswing components?
Which means that having the XML or XSL not only show Jswing component on
the web browser but also the component shall function as intended.   For

1.) For a button component, click the button to invoke another window, the
window shall pop up.

2.) The component can receive random notification event from the server.
(Corba server, web server ...)

Thanks in advance,
