I remember XSL FO experts explaining > why FOs are very much different from CSS ... Differences between XPath and XQuery: - Static typing in XQuery, not in XPath - Construction in XQuery, not in XPath - Sorting and grouping in XQuery, not in XPath - Function definition in XQuery (including recursive functions) - XQuery may not provide all XPath axes (implementation issue) Differences between XQuery and XSLT: - XSLT currently operates on tree fragments, XQuery on sequences of nodes and values - XSLT has a data driven processing architecture, XQuery has a declarative processing architecture Best regards Michael
