I think that perhaps the most useful thing that can be done to pry xml
away from the perl evangelists would be to work on making XSL a more
To do this XSL probably needs to be seen as a general XML to XML
transformation language (or perl (PML?) will fill that niche).
Then construct a version of XSL with embedded Python (for string
manipulation and suchlike) and with Python objects which could be
used for constructing XML structures.
Finally build a simple display engine and voila....
(I've been actually thinking about doing something like this myself
maybe trying to use jade as a back end but jade is so complex...)
Though it seems so futile to resist the perl-borg juggernaut.
I had to fight hard to write cgi scripts in Python instead of
perl - after all "perl is the only language for CGI"
