In the interview, conducted by Ivan Pedruzzi, Stylus Studio Senior Product Architect, and editor The Stylus Scoop, Dr. Kay provides an update on the exciting work being undertaken at the W3C on emerging XML technologies including XSLT 2.0, XPath 2.0, XQuery 1.0, and he shares his insights on how these technologies are likely to inter-operate and work alongside related XML technologies such as SQL/XML, and XML tools and components. Dr. Kay is the author of XSLT Programmer's Reference from Wrox Press, the XSLT reference standard. He is also the editor of the W3C's XSLT 2.0 specification, which is currently a Last Call Working Draft, and his Java-based Saxon XSLT and XQuery processors are two of the most successful and popular processors in the languages' histories. Michael recently formed his own company, Saxonica, and has launched a commercial version of Saxon with support for XML Schema.
