while writing an AJAX application, I was concerned about the little bit of extra time it took to load the xml. I reversed the application to start with the xml, apply an xsl transform, that loads in the jquery scripts, and it's all much faster, with only a few lines of code being changed. http://jpassoc.com/survey/survey.html vs http://jpassoc.com/survey/survey.xml jquery made the change extremely easy! how many of the jquery supported browsers don't do xsl? (or don't do it right) I tested in FF 2, Safari, Opera, and IE 7. _______________________________________________ jQuery mailing list email@example.com http://jquery.com/discuss/
Looks good in FF2 mac and IE6 pc as well as netscape. I have been trying to learn xsl, can you recommend some resources. I tried to reverse engineer the api, Jorn's api and <a href="http://backbase.com">backbase.com </a> but no luck. thanks.<br clear="all"> -- Benjamin Sterling <a href="http://www.KenzoMedia.com">http://www.KenzoMedia.com</a> <a href="http://www.KenzoHosting.com">http://www.KenzoHosting.com</a> _______________________________________________ jQuery mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://jquery.com/discuss/
thanks! I was wondering about ie 5.5 and Konquerer and any others. I learned xsl by the book. XSLT by Michael Kay, author of saxon (and one of the fathers of xsl 2.0) and then all over again by reading XSLT 2,0 by Michael Kay! It's a really cool language, designed to be interpreted. everything is a rule.
Hi. Kay's books are awesome but there are specific hurdles to learning XSL at the start that would make me want to recommend an intro book or tutorial before jumping into a full on descriptive/reference book like Kay's. By the same token, for this particular language a cookbook is less likely to be a good resource. You might check out the book linked below. I haven't read this, but it gets good reviews. I have read other stuff by Tennison and she's an expert in the field and a really good author... not just someone who knows the stuff that they dragged in to write the book. http://www.amazon.com/Beginning-XSLT-Jeni-Tennison/dp/1861005946 This has a bunch of stuff if you're just looking to dip in your toe: http://www.w3schools.com/xsl/default.asp This website has a bunch of the best threads from the excellent xsl mailing list abridged and archived: http://www.dpawson.co.uk/xsl/sect1/intro.html ------------->Nathan .:||:._.:||:._.:||:._.:||:._.:||:._.:||:._.:||:._.:||:._.:||:._.:||:._.: ||:.
