Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to ANN: XSLT support added to AOLServer/nsxml

Posted by C. R. Oldham on
Yon Derek:
ACS 5 will be XML/XSLT based.

Steven Pulito:
xml/xslt, at least for my purposes, might be able to replace the aD templating system

Yon and Steven, would you be willing to discuss these statements a little bit? I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around these concepts. As we are in the design phase of some new web applications, I'd like to try for an XML/XSL/XSLT approach if I can, but one of the things I like about the aD templating system is that I have a ghost of a chance to teach my HTML people how to use the tags. XSLT looks so *complicated* I missing something?

OTOH, it looks like there will be lots of tools for supporting XML+XSLT...
