XML Transformations with CSS and DOM

Saturday September 28th, 2002

Apple Developer Connection has a tutorial describing how to render XML in Mozilla using CSS and DOM. The article starts off by explaining how to style XML using CSS and then uses DOM Level 2 to transform some of the output into XHTML. This is all standards-compliant stuff that should work in any 'next generation' browser but only Mozilla is currently cool enough to support it all. The tutorial is by Scott Andrew LePera, who also wrote ADC's last article about Mozilla.

Better for programming what? For programming rich internet enabled clients? For many, probably becase Mozilla has better xp networking and layout capabilities than Java and that it's got lots of great xp functionality scriptable via JS and Python (pearl too?) and that it's got a xp UI toolkit that's very full featured and relatively easy to use.

(see Phoenix, for example. it is the result of a few weeks of work by a few part-time developers and it's already a great web-browser. i don't see anyone throwing together a fully Java web browser with that few resources in that many hours that comes even close to Phoenix in functionality and usability)
