Actually, XSL is a natural fit for C++ devs IMHO.

It's both functional (so easy for template meta-programmers),
and procedural (so easy for imperative language programmers).

Just read and invest time with the XPath and XSLT books from Dr Kay,
and you're good to go :) Preferably 2.0 (this made me notice there's a new
3.0 just out !)

I think learning XPath/XSLT made me a better programmer even, broadening my
CompSci horizons.
Completely OT and FWIW, but I just couldn't resist. :) --DD
