No, because I would assume that this is the sort of job XSL would handle straightforwardly. As of today, the performance may be lagging behind, and the multiple result trees are not standard, but the application in general seems to me to be in XSL's domain. I take James Clark's point: > *not* to do this. A key part of educating people about XSLT should be > to educate them about when to use it and when not to use it. but I am not sure I have a good sense of the "when" and the "when not" yet. James' examples help (particularly "if your transformation is doing complex transformations on the text content of the document", which I can relate to) Sebastian XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
