So, when we saw KAJ in NYC Monday -- he told us it shouldn't stop with Wade -- saying people like Kobe Bryant should also consider politics ...because athletes have the popularity to be great leaders. These are some of the fictions of Philip K Dick, whose writing, often ignored in his lifetime, seems to vibrate with anxiety and desperate wit about the things that worry us today: the effects of technology on the human mind; mankind's impact on the world; and the unstable nature of reality itself.As two new Philip K Dick adaptations head to the screen, the author's daughter says the world is edging ever closer to his wildest imaginings. "It was always my hope, in writing novels and stories that asked the question 'What is reality?

Generation of SOAP messages, creation of non-XML source code from XML documentation files (especially with many of the other new features in that specification), and rerouting of messages to databases all fall within the province of this new feature.

Combine that with the elimination of the tree fragment such that intermediate XML can be created within a transformation and manipulated directly (no more node-set() function!

The political statement out of the way, its time I got back to why I write this column in the first place ... Sometimes the specs are more like "vomit" or "dirt", though with annotations.

Watching the W3C at work is very much like shaking out Bertie Bott's Jelly Beans (the kind from Harry Potter that my 11 year old daughter so loves torturing her old father with).

This makes it possible for an XSLT2 document to generate more than one output.

The most obvious uses of this capability is to use XSLT2 to generate secondary XML documents, but much like input and output streams this is just one of many areas.The last couple of weeks I'd have to say there were a delightfully high number of blueberry delight and banana split and the worst to come out was still on the order of "grass" - edible, just not all that exciting.We're past the OWL specifications (there's another Harry Potter column coming on if you're not very careful) which quite frankly read like Noam Chomsky had just engaged in a serious argument with Richard Feynman.A lot of my job entails reading behind the lines and trying to understand the significance, but to me this is a pretty strong indication that both Sun and IBM are watching XSLT2 VERY carefully; you don't put a powerhouse hitter like Norman Walsh (the author of the Doc Book specification) on a specification unless you think it'll be important.That you'd need a specification just for the serialization aspect of XSLT2 may seem a little odd as well, until you understand that one of the key new features in that specification is the element.You had a drought where for a while all that was brewing were small specs like Accessibility, important in their own right but like listening to a lecture about going on dates from your spinster great aunt.
