This weekend I was completely unplugged, my wife took me away of computers and we drove to Tiberias. No laptop, no internet, just two days of swimming in the Sea of Galilee aka Kineret and fish-eating. It was great.
Apparently at the same time my article I was talking about finally made its appearance at XML Extreme Column of MSDN. Here it is: "Producing Multiple Outputs from an XSL Transformation". It's about how to achieve multiple output XSLT in .NET. My first article, so any comments espacially critical ones will be greatly appreciated. Is it well-written or at least clear? Should MultiXmlTextWriter be developed further? I've been thinking about HTML output method, this can be done by creating HTMLTextWriter:XmlWriter, like System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter one, but implementing XmlWriter instead. Probably not bad idea.
Like Tim Bray has no idea what to do with RDF.net domain he owned, I recalled today I own XPath.info and XSL.info domain names for almost two years now (since .info TLD was introduced back in 2001) and the same way never done a thing with them. Why then did I register them? I don't know, there was a fever before .info were allowed and also there was sort of a lottery for the right to register .info domains, and I just filled a couple of preregistration forms and it turned out I won these two domains.
So, does anybody have any ideas what projects can be done at these domains? It would be nice to build sort of information repository at XSL.info for instance. Any volunteers, especially Web designers?
So version 1.2 of nxslt released.
Changes since 1.1:
