  • First, a detail: XSL:FO is a page description language (think HTML+CSS, but more comprehensive, and with full support for page-based layouts and typography), it's not a transformation language. XSLT is the transformation language; it's supposed to be used to transform semantically-structured XML documents into presentation form (be it text, HTML, XSL:FO, or whatever).

    Second, syntax is almost never a problem: XSLT is a nice transformation language in spite of the rather awful syntax. If TGE can get a tree-transformation language implementing the most useful semantic of XSLT and DSSSL, even if it's in the form of a set of PMCs, it would be immensely useful.

    • Thanks for the clarifications and explanations! I think I starting to understand TGE and PAST but there is still a long way for me to go.
