Note that "if and when" the XML revolution comes, it will be because

Actually, if I understand the new XHTML specifications from W3C, the
XML revolution may be here. They're making HTML an application of XML.
The style sheets appear to be CSS rather than XSL, but I would expect
XSL and other style sheets to become very available for XHTML soon.


Check out Extensible Stylesheet language (XSL) Version 1.0 Working Draft 18 October 2000.

(http://www.w3.org/TR/2000/WD-xsl-20001018/)

360 pages of detailed layout within XSL. CSS is the viewer formatting vehicle. It's getting very detailed.
