  • Well, I for one hope they never die! They’re far too useful. Just because XML has been used by the clueless as a hammer for every problem they encounter does not make it a bad idea when used correctly; and the XSLT model (albeit not syntax) is elegant to an extent I have rarely encountered elsewhere.
