Not withstanding my previous comments on this thread being an annually repetitive occurrence, i do think there is a problem in your reasoning, Greg:
Once you target a specific frontend you end up in the same scenario as we had with the South African modules for BibleCs only. or - on a grander scale - as all those IE6-only sites.
I would much rather we produced good modules and filed endless numbers of bug reports against any application and the library for non-compliance if things which should work do not work, instead of targetting the oddities and non-compliant aspects of each application separately.
And yes, I think XSLT and CSS combination would be the best. I am still waiting for Troy's actual reasoning rather than his gut reaction to XSLT. He promised it.
