An anonymous contributor writes "XML.com just published an article
titled [0]Printing XML: Why CSS Is Better than XSL written by Michael
Day and [1]Håkon Wium Lie. The article was written in response to
[2]Norm Walsh's claim that [3]CSS will never fix [printing]. Did you
hear me? CSS will never fix it!. The article shows how a [4]100-line CSS
style sheet gives you the same formatted version of [5]W3C's Webarch as
the [6]1000-line XSL style sheet by using [7]Prince."

Okay, one is envolved with Prince, but why is the other one promoting that
instead of making his company's product print better? Not owning a printer
myself, I don't care much anyway.

What the fuck? This is Usenet! This is where discussion was invented,
popularized and, after considerable experience, declared futile.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: "There is an art to flying, or rather
a knack. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and
miss... Most people fail to miss the ground, and if they are really trying
properly, the likelihood is that they will miss it fairly hard."
