Sv: [XSL-FO] Why Formatting "Objects"?
- I have no idea either, I think it should just be foml, cause these aren't style sheets of any sort. At least I have yet to apply them to another document.:(----- Original Message -----From: AndrewWatt2001@...Sent: Tuesday, February 06, 2001 10:35 AMSubject: [XSL-FO] Why Formatting "Objects"?I apologise if the answer to that question is obvious to everybody but me,
but on several occasions I have wondered why Formatting "Objects" rather
than, for example, "Formatting Elements" or even "Formatting Nodes".
And, for that matter, why "XSL-FO" why not just "XSL-F" a la XSLT?
Maybe these are stupid questions to which the answer is "Just because". :)
Considering that,at some point in late 1997 (I think), we were within a vote
or two of being devotees of "MAGMA" rather than "XML" (if remember correctly)
maybe XSL-FO "just is".
But if anyone does know why the name XSL-FO was chosen I would be interested
to be educated.
