Abel: would you mind if I borrowed some of your verbiage for that documentation?
Another note, but now about the design of your product. Though it looks
like a well thought-of design, I think you made one major mistake not to
go the W3C XML way to write extensions in their own namespace.
Noted. That is something I am aiming for in version 2. I was anxious to get the
idea out of head and that is one of the decisions I made early on just to get a
working model. The namespace would be a welcome addition.
I do have a question, if you don't mind. Why did you choose to
generate the XSLT from the template in Java, instead of XSLT? A
You know, it never occurred to me until I read this. That is an
excellent idea and bears
some thought. I chose Java because I am intimate with it's XML
facilities and there is a
lot of logical transformation going on under the covers which is more readily
accomplished with a general purpose language.
