Darren HaydukSubject: Scenarios and Parameters
Author: Darren Hayduk

There seems to be some inconsistency between Stylus Studio parameter values and say XT and Saxon.

For example, I have a parameter that is expecting a string value. With Stylus Studio, I need to quote the string otherwise the value appears as empty within the stylesheet. XT and Saxon don't require the quotes...

< xsl:param name="paramtest" />
< xsl:template match="/" >
The parameter is:
< xsl:value-of select="$paramtest" />
< /xsl:template>

> xt test.xml paramtest.xslt paramtest=true
The parameter is : true

> xt test.xml paramtest.xslt paramtest='true'
The parameter is : 'true'

Stylus Studio:
The parameter is :

The parameter is : true

- Produces Error -

I also did not see any notes regarding this quoting requirement in the documentation. (I would prefer that SS be changed to match other engines, not the docs be changed to reflect the behavior! )

We are aware of this difference (and sorry for not having made it explicit
in the documentation).

We did that, because we thought it would have been valuable for users to be
able to specify when you wanted to pass parameters as strings and when as
"values". But I understand how this can become confusing.

We will change the parameter setting gui to make this distinction clear,
and we will switch to the "string behavior" as the default.
