Further improvements on (XSL)TAL
Today I worked again a little bit on (XSL)TAL, a replacement of XSLT for simple needs (maybe also for powerfull stuff, never really used TAL for something more that a simple website). I updated the Wiki Page, added some examples using the one Bertrand used in his proposal for an attribute based template language and last but not least, I wrote a mail about that to the cocoon-dev mailinglist. Let's see, what they think about it ;) But I have the impression, they don't like TAL for some reasons. They do like the Attribute Based approach, just not TAL itself. Not Invented Here syndrom? Or is it really not as simple as it could be? /me can't judge at the moment.
I also added two new attributes. tal:match adds a simple replacement mechanism like xsl:template matchers within TAL and with tal:include you can include external XSLT stylesheets for greater flexibilty (eg. defining xsl:templates in a central place or writing more complex stuff). See the wiki page mentioned above for a little bit more info.
