Yes, msxsl.exe is a very nice and useful utility. Brilliant programming by Andy Kimball, who put so much functionality in just 20K. There was an update done in 2003, I think. The latest download has been set up on 19 Sep. 2004 at: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=2fb55371-c94e-4373-b0e9-db4816552e41&displaylang=en There one will also find the source code of msxsl. One year ago I had the pleasure to extend msxsl.exe with support for EXSLT for MSXML4 (the Common and Sets modules). This can be downloaded from the sourceforge.net page of FXSL. Around last Christmas I also performed a minor fix to msxsl to make it work with high-frequency timers as I found out that msxsl.exe stopped to display timings on my newly bought PC. This latest version can also be downloaded at FXSL's sourceforge.net page. It is extremely useful and handy to use msxsl.exe with an XSLT IDE such as XSelerator -- for example in this way it is possible to avoid writing any code when using EXSLT for MSXML4. I am very pleased using a similar utility -- nXSLT.exe (the msxsl analog for .NET) by Oleg Tkachenko. msxsl.exe and nXSLT are great tools, because they free the XSLT programmer of any extraneous coding/integration tasks and allow them to concentrate entirely on their XSLT code.
