Hi Tim,

Tim said:
On top of which, if you combine XML & CSS you seem to lose access to
the DOM. And why would I bother sending XML to a browser if I
didn't plan to do something other than display it once it got there;
and how can I do anything if the DOM isn't there?  Case closed.

If anyone has actually managed to get the DOM working in the
XML+CSS environment, please let us know how. -Tim

Didier replies:
With the behavior draft we can do that if a CSS?? (3 maybe) includes a
@script construct. In this case a full access to the DOM is feasible and
thus it provides user interaction processing in addition to rendition.
