I came across a good site today which is generating web pages using xml plus xlst. And an idea came cross my mind – does Google prefer sites using xml + xlst? i.e. suppose the transformed xhtml contents are all the same, is xml + xlst technology gain more SEO weight than xhtml?
I asked myself the question, and assumed the answer is postive. Bearing in mind xml + xlst technology makes cloaking much easier, but Google must have some technology to anti-cloaking in the long term.
However, after I have searched Google, the expects who answered the question with No.
