While we're on the subject, I haven't dabbled in the XML-Perl mixture.

I tried to sit down and get a grasp on it, but I found more XML modules on
CPAN than you could shake a stick at.  Where would the members of this
list suggest I go to start?  I'm a Perl-XML newbie.  I know Perl, I know
XML, I don't know where to start when making them go together.

My main interest is in XML and XSL and how they go together in Perl.

I'm assuming you mean the Weston's bread factory?  That place smells
awesome when driving by.  *drool*


There's 10 kinds of people in this world, those that understand binary,
and those that don't.
