Subject: Alpha release of XSL-to-DSSSL translator


I'm pleased to announce the alpha release of xslj, a Jade-compatible
XSL-to-DSSSL translator.  XSL is the eXtensible Style Language,
proposed as the language for style sheets for XML in
"A Proposal for XSL" (

XSLJ is a virtually complete implementation of XSL by way of
translation into extended DSSSL, as supported by the latest test
release of James Clark's DSSSL engine Jade.  XSLJ translates valid XSL
style sheets into valid extended DSSSL style sheets, which can then be
used to render XML documents using Jade.

Virtually all of XSL as described in "A Proposal for XSL" is
supported, although some minor modifications have been necessitated by
the exigencies of implementation, all of which are described in detail
in material contained in the release.

Sources and executables for Win32 and Un*x (Solaris and FreeBSD) are
available without charge to all.

For more information including download instructions, see

The construction of XSLJ was supported by the UK Economic and Social
Research Council via their support for HCRC and by a grant from Microsoft.
