RE: Xquery for 'hard data probs' was RE: XSLT vs Perl
Hmmm, perhaps it will ultimately be performance characteristics that become the main reason to use Xquery over XSLT.
This isn't surprising if this was what XQuery was designed for. (Questions of rationality aside.)
Evan Lenz, fully three years ago, was demonstrating how the erstwhile set of use cases for XML Query could be implemented in XSLT 1.0.
