Nice post (but do we really need the CSS?). Question: why
is the XML file static? I myself have used static XML files before (if i need a new record, i add one by hand via vim),
but in 'real world', that data is stored in a relation
database. If you had used XML::Generator::DBI, then
i could see the point better, but having the "boss" handle
the XML file seems, wrong.
in reply to <strike>XSL/XML/Perl as a development process</strike>
Also, i feel compelled to mention that unless you are
looking for platform independence, XML/XSLT just isn't as
fun as a pure Perl templating solution, such as
HTML::Template or Template, IMHO.
I really think this would have been a better article if you
had included them as well. But effort++. :)
Addendum: indeed, i really wish you had made this article
more general, as what you are describing is the
model view control "pattern".
