I would agree with this entirely. But then, I think it's true of every
programming language as well. There is an enormous amount of bad
unmaintainable code being written by self-taught amateur programmers, in
sorts of languages, and many of them are attracted to languages like XSLT
that look easy at first sight.

Yes. Not just programming languages but CSS, HTML and Word documents too.

Unfortunately I am one of those "self-taught amateur programmers". But the point is that those poeple have to start somewhere, too. And I agree XSL programming looked very easy at the first sight but if you want to get deeper into this programming language it is of course very difficult, particularly if you do not have any programming experience. But Thank God this list exists :-)
