Yes, XSLT is near impossible for most HTML-only people to learn, and XML
gives them too wide a range. However, I firmly believe that WYSIWYG RDF/SW
editors/browsets will fill the much needed gap. Tim had something like that
running on his NeXT machine, but they took the editing function out when
they ported it. oops.
Come on someone, there's a fame and fortune waiting for the person who
creates an easy to use SW format, and then makes a neat little tool for it.
I'd do it myself, but I'm not a very good C++ programmer...

Kindest Regards,
