In previous messages I have pointed to versions of a DSSSL stylesheet
for HTML 3.2.  The HTML 3.2 stylesheet shows how DSSSL can be used to
program formatting features such as automatic table-of-contents
generation that cannot be achieved in a purely declarative style

The DSSSL stylesheet for the Text Encoding Initiative announced below
demonstrates how the standard stylesheet programming language can be
used to specify formatting for any SGML-conformant markup, not just
HTML.  This ability to express programmed formatting in a standard way
for arbitrarily defined tag sets will become increasingly important as
XML enables Web publishers to extend their repertoire of tags and
attributes at will.

Subject: DSSSL TEI stylesheet available

A preliminary DSSSL stylesheet written by Richard Light for documents
marked up in conformance with the TEI-Lite DTD is now available by
anonymous ftp from sunsite.unc.edu.  To obtain the stylesheet and
associated files needed to test it, log into sunsite.unc.edu as
"anonymous", set "bin", and change to the directory
/pub/sun-info/standards/dsssl/stylesheets/tei/.  Get the file named
README and one of the two files tei-dsl.tar.gz or tei-dsl.zip.  DOS
and Solaris versions of the generic unzip program are available in the
directory /pub/sun-info/standards/dsssl/jade/jade-0.4.
