Description René Kijewski 2009-03-07 02:22:54 UTC
It would be great, if there would be a very simple XML output/skin to be used with XSLT.
I mean a wiki text like

 *b<ref name="ref">[ Reference]</ref>

could be rendered to something like

 <mediawiki title="Wikipedia" wgArticlePath="/wiki/$1" . . .>
  <user name="" id="" newmessages="true" . . . />
   . . .
  <page wgArticleId="4711" wgTitle="Test" wgCanonicalNamespace="" . . . />
   <content wgCurRevisionId="31173">
    <h indent="2" achnor="Header">Header</h>
    <list type="unordered">
     <li>b<ref name="ref"/></li>
    <ref name="ref">
     <link href="">Reference</link>
  . . .

so that a really custom skin could be created. I don't know if this would be posible. Maybe it would break with too many existing extensions. The <content> would almost be the same as it's now with HTML. I know, a new skin would not be enough to achieve my proposal.

XSLT use to be fun years ago. Given the complexity of managing XSLT / XML output, we are not going to ever implement such support.
