Hey, kids! Time to fire up JPython and get going on the second prize,
by writing an XSL implementation..
[Reset any follow-ups to the XML-SIG, please...]
Sun will put up $30,000 for implementations of XSL to be added to
the Mozilla.org open source effort, developing the source code to
Netscape Communications' Communicator browser. This implementation
would be a plug-in that would provide XSL formatting capabilities
for the Mozilla browser and would fall under the Mozilla public
The second set of prizes, funded in part by Adobe, will provide a
$40,000 first prize and a $20,000 second prize for a print-oriented
batch formatter written in Sun's Java programming language and that
supports Adobe's portable document format (PDF). The batch
formatter will let a printer process information from style sheets
when printing batches of data.
