So what. XSL is a ***>>>FUTURE<<<***!!! I want Microsoft and Netscape
to first buckle down and implement 100% support for the 21-month old
totally stable well-understood CSS 1 spec. The XSL stuff is cool
but MS is running a *big* risk of people going ahead and implementing
something that may be real different from where XSL ends up next
summer. I cannot in good conscience recommend to anyone that they
implement anything mission-critical based on XSL, and I'm one of
the world's biggest supporters of the XSL work.
>99% support for the DOM recomendation!
Unreservedly good news.

Almost. So close you can taste it. But we need for NS to get their
act together so you don't have to be browser-specific to achieve this.
And we also need these guys to take some of the time they're investing in
standards of the future and put them into finishing the job on standards
of the present. -Tim
