( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Separation of content (XML files in an XML database) from templates (XSL-T files in an XML database) from presentation styles (CSS, JavaScript & DHTML) is one of the most powerful and useful things a content management and application server combination can do - see also Content management system recommendations? and XSLT vs Templating?.

However from a Perl programmers perspective, you don't need to use an external standalone XSL-T engine such as Saxon, or Xalan (good though they both are). You can get your own application to do it it's self, directly or via a library, this is how Cocoon and AxKit and many other commercial systems do.

From the perspective of a Perl user you can use Matts excellent AxKit framework, or his XML::LibXSLT module directly from within your Perl code. I use XML::LibXML to manipulate XML files, template them with XSL-T, and save the output as HTML files! See Mega XSLT Batch job - best approach?, (in answer to Tilly's question, in testing on a 1Ghz Linux box, from one 1Mb XML file I was able to create over 2000 HTML pages, and associated folders in under 30 seconds!)

If used right XML is a very good tool, just remember it's not right for everything, no matter what some people say!

Another humble 2p

    [ambrus]: modern computers have way enough processing power to allow this, at least for geeks who are willing to spend a few weeks to learn a tricky new user interface like vim
    [Corion]: ambrus: Well, for mathematical notation, I find blackboard much more convenient than a computer. But when inserting text or moving text around, the computer wins obviously
    [ambrus]: But either of these is a big problem in practice, so I'd need to spend like thirty years of my life to solve (a) and five more years to solve (b)
    [ambrus]: Corion: yes, CURRENTLY the blackboard is more convenient
    [ambrus]: and it's not like I want to ban blackboards anyway
    [ambrus]: you already have blackboards and a canvas for projector or overhead transparencies (or positive film slide projector, not used for maths) canvas in the same lecture halls today, and switch in a few minutes between presentations,
    [ambrus]: they're only difficult to use together.
    [ambrus]: overhead transparencies are a nice convenience by the way that mix the two slides, because you can write them in advance and edit them during the presentation easily. but they're not very much in fasion these days.
    [ambrus]: you can even print them.
    [Discipulus]: ambrus i'm trying out MremoteNG which wrap putty and rdp and many other things..
