Hi Scott
I have a question about XSLT in browser:
I've used it in a project some time ago equiped with XML IE5 from Wrox.
The point was this sorting feature. You rearange the node-elements by clicking on the header of the table which invoked some javaScript in the XSLT.
Our experience was that it became terrible slow, with larger documents (600 data-rows or shall I say 1st level under root-node element-nodes ).
Is that right? Or was it my lacking experience in XSLT coding?
Do you think it will ever become a wildely adopted client technique??
Axel

So far, I see XML's major application is for system integration or communication, file exchange between different systems or applications. Also for making easy display for different presentation devices. Other than these aspects, using XML is not significant for software engineering.
Would you please correct me or elabrate.
Thanks
