RE: Re: The Perils of Sudden Type-Safety in XPath 2.0
> One of the critiques about XSLT 1.0 is that it's too verbose. Verbosity which obfuscates meaning is a problem. Often such verbosity is the result of poor understanding of the language, from what I've seen, writing an incredibly long sequence of nested xsl:choose or stuff like this <xsl:if test="myelement > 0"> <xsl:apply-templates select="myelement"/> </xsl:if> which believe me I've seen. On the other hand I don't have much problem with verbosity that clarifies meaning. A good example might be long xpaths where an explicit reference to the ancestor axis etc. might clarify what in fact is going on. XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
