Subject RE: HTML and XSL
Date Tue, 18 Jul 2000 14:27:56 GMT
One free product that begins to address this problem is something called
from Percussion (

It will take HTML with some markup to identify the active content and create
a DTD and stylesheet for it.

I haven't used XSplit a lot, so I can't really give it a rave.  But it
certainly is thought-provoking.

I believe that XSLT (and Cocoon) will only become mainstream when GUI tools
exist which leverage XSLT's advantages to provide an authoring environment
substantially superior to the current HTML-based authorings.  The support
for modularity and reusability must be made visual, obvious, and compelling.

Good question! I dread the moment when I have to tell our web designer that
he will now have to style his pages in XSL instead of Dreamweaver.

Maybe this should be a faq: "How do I tell my designer ...?" ;)

I am new in this thing of Cocoon, event though I have some experience
with servlets, JSP,...
Maybe this is not the best place to make my questions, but I would
reallyb apreciate any help :-)

Ok, I can write my XSP and produce pretty XM files with all my data. In
the other hand, I
have a lot of fancy HTML editors that allow me to create nice layouts.
So, I would need to
define a XSL to transform my XML in my final HTML file. The question is:
if I can produce
easily the HTML, how can I obtain the XSL file? I guess somebody will
tell me that I should
start working with the XSL file and forget the HTML file. In this case,
do they exist visual tools
to make those design as in HTML?

Thanks a lot,
