I see the occasional value of  XML for interprocess communication.  It's the
XSL part that seems to need clarification.

It seems to me that the association of a very simple technology (like style
sheets) with a fairly complex technology (like XSL) is beguiling and
misleading.  I don't see the relation.

It seems to me that XSL transforms XML into HTML (please feel free to
substitute any other type of formatted text for HTML) similar to the say
Net.Data transforms a SQL result set into HTML.

Would writing an XSL script be any easier or better than writing a Net.Data
macro, for example?
