Why use XSLT in the first place?


I have been asked why I want to use XSLT for the Import/Normalisation/Export Architecture for PeopleAggregator in the first place.

Considering that a lot of the input and output formats we will be aiming at are not XML in the first place, and XSLT is not a very easily read and writte language. There is one major thought behind this: XSLT is maybe the only readily availeable and well understoof transformation language. Now I could well write the transformations (Normalisation stage) in pure PHP, maybe using DOM or native PHP data structures. But XSLT in this case acts a a kind of p-code. A PHP indipendeant way of expression the way the dat should be mapped from this to that.
