Cool. :)

And XSL Transformations are sexier than PHP and Perl templates, right?
(That's mostly a /rhetorical/ question.) I personally think it's silly
to use PHP and Perl templates when there's a
perfectly good XML template language out there. I also think it'll be
easier to make the templates for my site if people aren't having to learn
how to use "proprietary" (for lack of a better term) short cuts like
those found in moveable type. (Which was my first idea...) It's a theory anyway.
