[xquery-talk] xquery technology now ready?

I would say the learning curve for MySQL and PHP would be much higher than learning XQuery.

Whichever way you go, you'll still need to learn HTML, JavaScript, JQuery and other JS frameworks to build a pretty site.

A web host service provider has advertised a service less than US$ 2 per month, which features the range standard web host tools, in this case an sql database and web server script language

So being technology agnostic, whilst xquery and xml technologies are interesting per se for a novice who has negligible prior knowledge, learning sql and php would suffice for the personal objective, creating a simple web site where information in a database can be viewed in a web page. Xforms is a great concept, but if it doesn't work with opera, or firefox or another w3-compliant browser, its advantage is lost.

Excuse my ignorance of the web host market, but if it was possible for a customer to say to a US$ 2 supplier "please install [xquery web server software name] and I'll use your service", I'd sign up and be more likely to learn xquery. From what others have written so far, the market state now seems a bit pre-mature.
