I should probably admit that I really like XSLT (perhaps I'm insane too), but it was really unsuited to the task we were using it for. I've since done quite a bit of XSLT and it's definitely the main tool I'd use if I wanted to screen scrape some HTML, for instance. But can you imagine someone saying "We want you to draw paths between points and they can't cross. And we want you to do it in XSLT"? I mean, you can do it... but... "not fun" doesn't begin to describe the pain.
