I mostly work with Novell/NetIQ Identity Manager, an XML based product that use XSLT, XPATH, and DirXML Script (its own XML based language).

I have written a book on the topic of the DirXML Script language.

comment When and why did the black velvet yarmulke become the standard for some communities?
@avi Excellent points. Also why I wanted larger ones. But my experience with larger knit kippahs is that the thread is much thicker and thus much less effort to make larger.

Maybe if I add Kaviyachol? Would that make it better. I had wondered as well why the downvotes.

@Dave that was my understanding. Or at least how my mom explained it to me. And being a nice Jewish boy I know not to doubt my mother.

@avi The more things change, the more they stay the same. Not worth a down vote though. :)

I recall pressed felt, made of mixed fibers as a possible shatnez. Functionally, pressed felt seems like the same as above?

I always thought it was hemp, but I am young enough that the early 80's would be when I began to remember such stuff.

And asking reminded me to go find my kittel, glad I looked, since my wife had moved it somewhere only she knows about. :)
