Not clear to me. XSLT works with well-formed XML, RDF can be expressed as
well-formed XML, XSLT can work with it. Of course, it doesn't have a
built-in RDF parser to find RDF triples; is that what you meant? XSLT
processors also don't render SVG when it finds it or display XForms when it
finds them, but because these formats are XML, XSLT can read them and offer
the stylesheet developer the opportunity to do something with the
information in them. It can "work with" all of them.
