>>Why do you want to do DSSSL and not XSL?
Sean McGrath's answer to Michael Fox's query is quite right.
It should also not be forgotten that XSL is not finished yet; those
who enjoy experiment and the thrill of the leading edge should
certainly be using it; others should be excused for using something
more stable for the time being.
As a pedantic side note: It will also surprise me greatly if XSL is
now, has ever been, or ever becomes a superset of DSSSL; the original
intention was to make it a subset of DSSSL, though that has been
complicated by the W3C's commitment to Cascading Style Sheets and I
doubt XSL will be a subset of DSSSL, either, in any strict sense.
