Which browsers will kindly implement XSL? I'd assume much - much less than  
those who will implement CSS3. And, if it a feature is a good thing, it is  
a good thing. Just because XSL is about that, there should be not much  
reason to implement such an important feature to CSS, which will truly  
revolutionize the CSS evolution (remembering that my proposed method (I  
don't know what is being used for arrangin data) is backwards compatible  
when you include your rudimentary styling markup, yet be able to move  
things around for CSS3 user-agents.)

Also quoting from W3:   Can be used with HTML? CSS yes   XSL no    .. And  
also it is stated that "The reason is that CSS is much easier to use,  
easier to learn, thus easier to maintain and cheaper."
