I think you're drawing conclusions too hastily: "when" does not imply "because". Saxon is unlikely to produce a StackOverflowError unless there is a very deep (usually infinite) recursion in your code, which I would have thought was more likely when you have many small templates than when you have one large one. What you are really saying is that you wrote a stylesheet that used a large template and it performed badly on two processors. The chances are that the inefficiencies in your code had nothing to do with the choice of XSLT processor, and nothing to do with the fact that it was using a large template. Rather, it was probably using an inefficient algorithm. Michael Kay http://www.saxonica.com/
