As much as I enjoy XSLT and its power, it has been the primary "gotcha" when it comes to customization of the user search experience. It's easy to just say, "write your own stylesheets," but we know full well that XSLT is not exactly an easy step up for the average web developer. To alleviate this, I've been working on a set of stylesheets that automatically generates a stylesheet to be used by our server, given just HTML input from the user following a couple of simple contracts. We haven't yet released this feature, but I'm finding it to be a very powerful application of XSLT. Of course, generating stylesheets from stylesheets will not always be feasible; the requirements have to be strictly defined ahead of time. In our case, they are, and we will be able to hide all this complexity from our customers, if they so choose.
