Once upon a time, I knew a man that was a genius. Yes, he was literally a genius. It was quite astounding. He had gotten a perfect score on the ACT and could have done anything that he wanted. He chose to be a high school chemistry teacher. I’m not saying that as a bad thing, I’m really not. I promise.
I would ask this friend all sorts of interesting questions. It was quite fun. He always knew all the answers. He could tell me why I needed to put eggs in my cookie batter and why eating that batter was probably not the best idea. He could tell me about how the microbes in my body worked and why I needed all of them. He could tell me about science and math and history. It seemed like he knew everything.
Now, years later, I have no idea where he is, or what he is doing, but I have a question for him. I really need to know what xsl-fo is. I don’t understand it. I’ve studied it and researched it and done everything I possibly could to understand it, but I still don’t quite get it. I need him to explain to me what I can’t quite grasp by myself. Oh friend, come back and explain xsl-fo to me!
