Re:  Question of performance
I would say it also depends on the complexity of your variable and what your preocessor needs to do to get the value, can you post an example?

Hello everybody

I have a fairly large (41 KB) xsl document that is of course used for processing xml documents.

In this document I (usualy) declare the variables in the scope that I use them. Now it is found that I need a complex variable some 3-4 different places in this document.

My question is this: For best performance, is it best declare this variable as a global one, allocating memory for it for the whole duration or is it best to declare it where it must be used each and every time thereby having to process the declaration 4 times in a document?

Or is it even more times than 4 since the condition that leads to the use of the variable may be in an xml document many many times?

In case the answer to my question is processor dependent, I am using MSXML 3.0.

(I hope that the question is clear enough stated).
Thank you for your time.
