Re: is XSLT 2.0 implementable? (was: N : M transforma
One suggestion for conformance testing (not as silly as it seems) is that you should construct the source data model using XSLT. That way, it's well defined what data model you get from a given input. I can see that that is a reasonable suggestion for nailing things down for conformance reasons, although the input-generating stylesheet will have to be careful not to assume anything about _its_ input, even just a single top level template match="/" can't be relied on as the effective PSVI obtained from (any) input might be a (possibly empty, possibly of length > 1) sequence of nodes, more than one of which matches /) I think, I must check the latest definition of / and initial input... If such precautions were just to avoid theoretical edge cases to tie down a test suite for predicatble results then that would be reasonable, but my very real fear is that these problems are not going to be rare edge cases, they are going to be every day incompatibilities. It's not going to be possible to answer any question on xsl-list without first ascertaing what XSLT system and (especially) what parser is being used. This will be bad, it may not be as bad as I fear (but I fear it will be).
