Given the fact that (a) millions of people learned easily Javascript
(b) a CSS rule is understandable in a single glance (c) DOM can be used
for a lot of things, transformations being _only_ a small part of it,
the fact that XSL is XMLized make no difference. The XSL-list is still
full of people, people working with XSL every day, asking for help
because of XSL complexity.
