I am in the middle of two battles on XML/XSLT in the PHP list. So i am
going to start another one here.
If your biz logic produces it's output in XML and your presentation
layer uses XSLT that gives you tremoundous flexibility to play around
with your presentation or your lower tiers without effective the others.

For example if today you build your site with HTML and later on you need
to adapt to WML, CHTML or other kind of markup all you need to do is
create a new XSL without changing any of the other components.

shoot me guys.
