Okay, I do not understand:  just where and when did XSLT get such a
bum rap?  I just do not understand, at all, the (below) opinion on the
language.  This persons comment (a colleague) is in response to a
templated XSLT solution I wrote for our organization.  The solution is
100% XSLT for the front end (web) presentation layer, and 100% C#
classes for middle and backend layers.  It encapsulates a number of
important business objects and processes, hence making life for the
developer simpler...

I have made this 'argument' to Karl S. before regarding the usage of
XSL to create web pages. I have done and entire site this way and
while it was technically satisfying it is in no way easy to maintain
and it is yet another technology path the needs to be learned and
learned well: XSL is NOT easy if you want to code professionally in
it. It IS easy to use XSL but not well. ....

I am, Karl S., and a proud member of this XSLT group!
