The conversion from the libxml nodes to SXML works, the reverse conversion works too. Meanwhile, the function “x:eval” which was planned for the third milestone is also implemented. Now I’m going to review all my remarks, fix my bugs and submit bugs to the libxml team.

Conversion of the attribute nodes seems working, although with some glitches. And I traditionally mention namespaces. I decided to have holes in ns processing in the first version.
SXML to XML conversion of attribute nodes is becaming a trouble. I’ve fixed several initially unnoticed issues and found more items to check.
Namespaces are still working, xml node of the type “document” is now handled correctly, XSLT XPath functions are activated. To finish with the libxml to sxml conversion, support of the top-level attribute nodes and result tree fragments should be added.
One of the use cases for XPath over legacy data is structured FrameMaker (FrameMaker+SGML). The structure is in fact XML, that’s good. But the only interface to this XML is something tree-like which is worse than DOM.
Adding variables to XPath was a simple task. But when I was testing it, I had to switch to testing the Scheme function “x:current” (former name “x:current-node”) and then found an essential problem with the namespaces.
Yesterday I submitted a feedback on Google AdSense advertisements. (I’m getting verry irrelevant ads!)
Sometimes it’s very unhelpful when vim automatically adds a linebreak at the end of file. Finally, I’ve became so irritated to switch to joe each time to correct the file, that I’ve found a solution.
What’s a nice thing! “Do you keep falling asleep in meetings and seminars? What about those long and boring conference calls? Here is a way to change all of that!”
Article isn’t writing. Although, in general, I have ideas what to write, the actual writing is painfully slow. Today I’ve only finish a section, and I feel I’ll rewrite it somewhen.
Unfortunately, Slovakian letter ť (latin small letter t with caron) is not supported by FrameMaker.
