History?
   Sometime back in ?2001 era, this list was instrumental in parting
xslt from (what is now) xsl-fo. Prior to this it was all XSL,
as defined largely by James Clark.

Only the people who were in the WG at the time can really say which factors -- politics, people, users, availability of software, or something else -- prompted the change, but the first separate XSLT draft was published on 21 April 1999 [1].

OK I got the date wrong Tony. Sorry :-)


Andrew has a valid point though.
