For those interested in printing, XML.com features an article called
"Printing XML: Why CSS Is Better than XSL" [1] written by Michael Day
and myself. The article compares the different approach taken by the
two languages and shows how CSS can be used to generate a table of
contents, headers/footers and multi-column layouts. The resulting
document looks pretty good [2].
