> Are there any efforts to co-ordinate XSLT/XPath 2.0 and XQL? Yes, there are extensive efforts. If you look at the XPath 2.0 requirements, you will see they are produced jointly by the two groups. http://www.w3.org/TR/2001/WD-xpath20req-20010214 There are a number of joint teams from the two areas working to devise an XPath 2.0 that will be usable both as a subset of XML Query and within XSLT. There are differences in the requirements for the two specifications: XSLT has much greater focus on construction of the result document, XML Query focuses on the selection of source documents, typically from a large database of such documents. But it is recognized that many of the current differences between the specifications are not actually necessary and that the requirements have a large area of overlap. (And for my company at least, the more the two specs have in common, the more we can re-use technology and skills).
