RE: XSLT conformance of MSXML2
On a Microsoft newsgroup (microsoft.public.xml.msxml-webrelease) the following message was posted: ================================================= From: Jonathan Marsh <nospam!!@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Subject: RE: Undocumented missing features in MSXML2 Date: Monday, January 31, 2000 8:52 PM The XSLT Additional Functions are implemented: - current() - system-property() - format-number() - function-available() - element-available() I'll file a bug on their omission from the SDK. The following are not: - document() - key() - unparsed-entity-uri() - generate-id() - Jonathan Marsh Microsoft ================================================= Another Microsoft developer said that we should realize that this web release is not yet feature-complete, and that they will be conformant with the XSLT and XPath specs. We are encouraged to post comments on the above-mentioned newsgroup! I think this would be a good idea, since they really seem to intend to conform to the standards we're discussing here. And they crave for our input. :-) I already posted a wish list saying that they should implement calling named templates, and the preceding-sibling, preceding, following-sibling, and following Xpath axes. Whereupon Microsoft developer Jonathan Marsh asked me which of these four I have the greatest need for, or are they all equally important. What do you all think? Maybe the -sibling ones are more widely used, e.g. in sorting/grouping?

Further investigation suggests that some format patterns work and others are rejected, none are ignored as I suggested.
