in thread So, what *is* the best way to deliever dynamic content nowadays?
Your point about not being constrained to a linear mode is actually one of the things I hold against XSLT, because all of the HTML monkeys I know like to think about page design in a linear mode. They don't want to specify a style for the product price; they want to write some HTML and say "the price goes here." It's just more intutitive to non-programmer types.
I can see value in pipelining for working on data, but I would do all of that data mangling before I get to a page generation stage, so the template tool itself doesn't need to support it.
Anyway, I have happilly used XML for other things and I don't usually take stabs at XSLT, but since he asked for opinions... I try to keep my preferences from coloring my templating guide too much (which now desperately needs an update, with new versions of AxKit, TT, Apache::ASP, etc. out).
