Sure. My point was that we can not say that 0.6 sec is a good response time. The topic "is XSLT fast enough" is in fact very tricky and requires long discussion. For example. Right now I'm working on some way of increasing the speed of XSLT transfromations up to N times. In my universe, pre-parsing of the stylesheet is not critical. Also, pre-parsing of the stylesheet is not critical in the universe of AxKit - ah - this could be a long topic. > I agree. > > Indeed, I do pre-parsing in my own XSLT implementation. > > But anyway, why should not we consider the original posting in this > thread as what it really is - as the smart announcement of Napa? That's another story. Of course it was not a benchmark, but announcement of Napa with attempt to explain why the heck should we pay attantion to yet another XSLT implementation. I don't actually find it smart, because only not-experienced moron will buy that 'Napa is very fast - that's why! Look at this 'benchmark' ' and from my point of view targeting on not-experienced morons is not smart. But maybe it is wise. ;-) Rgds.Paul.
