A Generic STS Viewer on the Web



Wendell Piez


In an alternate universe, XML (1998) and XSLT 1.0 (1999) were not developed so early, and did not have to wait for the rest of the web to catch up. In ours, it took two decades before other critically important pieces of the puzzle – CSS, DOM, ECMAScript/Javascript – were mature to the point where the platform becomes viable for truly distributed architectures, as it has always promised. Take a look at XSLT 1.0 in the browser, operating over standards-based STS (Standards Tag Suite) XML, and see what it can do today. Its virtue is not that it does things that have not been done before. It just makes these ordinary capabilities radically more accessible.
