One nice thing in using mostly fixed XSLT combined with XML templates is
that you can do mostly WYSIWYG with XML/XSLT editors like Stylus, eXcelon
and XML Spy if your target is HTML. I say "mostly" because it's sometimes
you end up flipping back and forth between views to see how things are
progressing, it's usually not direct editing of the visual result.
None-the-less it can be a pretty efficient way to work.
