essence of my CS work

Recently I was asked for high-level details of my scientific work. As result, I've written a short text, which I like.

The main operations with the tree data in programs are:

* (a) navigation over the trees,
* (b) transformation of the trees.

My work consist of:

* I claim that instead of writing code for (a) and (b) manually, it's more profitable to use XPath and XSLT, correspondingly.
* I explain how to do it.

Copied it to my research wiki.

Meanwhile, two competitors have appeared recently:

* TreeBind by Eric van der Vlist, and
* Virtual XML Garden by IBM alphaWorks.

Eric visits XTech 2006, so I hope we will productively share our experience.
