XML News from Monday, August 14, 2006

Len Bullard recently pointed out to me the OASIS-hosted xml-dev list seems to have gone dark again. Could someone please bang some heads over at OASIS to fix this? Thanks.

Alex Moffat's XSLTXT is a compact, non-XML syntax for XSLT. Think of it as doing for XSLT what RNC does for RELAX NG. It's an interesting idea. It may especially appeal to Python folks. I'm not sure I like it, but then I'm, more than usually comfortable with both XSLT and XML. I even prefer RNG to RNC. XSLTXT includes translators to and from XSLTXT. It's published under the GNU Lesser General Public License.
