    (This is really a discussion, so mods might want to move it.)

    I was searching to see if there was a plugin to do XSLT transforms in Opera, and came across this document: http://people.opera.com/howcome/1999/foch.html , linked to from their compatibility page at http://www.opera.com/docs/specs/index.dml .

    Apparently they thing that XSLT transforming into HTML is a backwards step, because web standards should be headed more towards data abstraction, while XML + XSLT -> HTML makes a document less abstract. They think webmasters will use it instead of CSS.

    I think that if webmasters code their data XML, and use XSLT to mark it up, instead of spitting out HTML, that means more abstraction. I think it aids abstraction on the web.

    Has this been discussed before? I guess the link to the .xsl document is hard coded into the .xml file, so maybe it's a little inflexible, but not that bad.
