Great info about XAML and MyXAML, thanx - yeah, that would be a great way to
go - separation of UI and data is what it's all about. .NET still doesn't
make a good job there, although it has been a lot worse with classic ASP.

For the moment, I use XSLT mainly for partial program processing purposes -
dynamically updating web.config for example, creating a new config file, a
audio/video media processing file, altering an XML source, or just plain old
HTML with Javascript to produce a web based form page.

Hi Pieter,

Yes I have seen that.

The frustrating thing is that I was hoping to use the HttpModule throughout,
it seems a lot quicker, but I know of some sites where there are login and
newsletter subscription forms on every page.

I guess I could work on a mix of both.

I also like the stuff at - something that I have used
on a Widows forms project but could also be used with - once you
have the basic handler made up it is very easy to create different form
structures and code without having to go editing and compiling the parent

What have you settled on doing?
