RE: killing xslt
-----Original Message----- From: M. David Peterson I sent this reply back through the list because there is some feedback that I feel we need to get from the group regarding whether or not this project should go as far as trying to both port Saxon in its current state while trying to make the project be 100% XSLT 2.0 compliant by adding the Schema support as well. With a little software development experience, I'd suggest a port of the current Saxon would be a sufficient challenge? If xsd takes off then its a good second phase. If not? Wait and see? I'm coming to the conclusion that there's enough new stuff, both good and bad, in xslt 2 without adding schema verification. My reasoning for taking a cautious approach is simple. If I understand correctly there is going to be a commercial release of Saxon 7.9.x that will include the Schema support of the XSLT 2.0 spec. As such, out of respect to Michael Kay and the simple fact that this is his brainchild, his blood, his sweat, and his tears of many, many, combined years I think we owe it to him to get his nod of approval before moving forward with taking it to that level. I'll leave Michael to answer that one. *** To Dave Pawson: Is this offer still valid? yes. regards DaveP -- DISCLAIMER: NOTICE: The information contained in this email and any attachments is confidential and may be privileged.
