Conversion at delivery time on the server is a popular choice, because it allows personalization, but it can be a heavy overhead for sites with high traffic. Some busy sites have found that it is more effective to generate a different set of HTML pages for each section of the target audience in advance, and at page request time, to do nothing more than selecting the right pre-constructed HTML page. Summary This introductory chapter described the whys and wherefores of XSLT: it tried to answer questions such as: ❑ What kind of language is it?

We expect to work on the formulation of a usable, implementable subset of DSSSL for use in WWW style sheets, and invite all interested parties to join in the effort. In late 1995 a W3C-sponsored workshop on stylesheet languages was held in Paris. html#clark What follows is a few selected paragraphs from these notes: DSSSL contains both a transformation language and a formatting language. Originally the transformation was needed to make certain kinds of styles possible (such as tables of contents).

Standard Procedures: The expression language should have a set of procedures that are built in to the XSL language. These are still to be identified. User Defined Functions: For reuse. Parameterized, but not recursive. Following this activity, the first Working Draft of XSL (not to be confused with the Proposal) was published on 18 August 1998, and the language Comment: Can we here? started to take shape, gradually converging on the final form it took in the 16 November 1999 Recommendation through a series of Working Drafts, each of which made radical changes, but kept the original design principles intact.
