What is the difference in the MSXSL Parser and the other XSL Paser. I am new
to XSL and have first been introduced to MSXSL active X object to convert my
file from XML to HTML. Is there a advantage of one over another? I realized
that most of the documentations on the web are on templates. Should I
convert my current MSXSL compatible codes to template types? It seems that
there are more documentation and flexibility in templates. Am I right to
say?
