All we have to do is rebrand XSLT with a nifty label that showcases it as a paradigm-shifting language. Don't call it "a stylesheet language for transforming XML," call it "A directed-Graph-Object Language." And when someone asks what a "directed-Graph Object" is, don't say "It's xml." Say "It's a kind of ultra-robust, annotated link-list datatype that allows multiple outgoing references from each entry!" Just think of all the amazing stuff you can do with an "ultra-robust, annotated link-list datatype that allows multiple outgoing references from each entry!" :J -David -- "A false conclusion, once arrived at and widely accepted is not dislodged easily, and the less it is understood, the more tenaciously it is held." - Cantor's Law of Preservation of Ignorance.
