Re: How to get UTC displayed on XSLT
Hi Dennis, Thanks for your comments to my mail. Sorry my intention was not to start a heated debate! I see XSLT 2.0 as a strong language enhancement. Ultimately (covering most of the use cases) input data is XML. XSLT 2.0 has strong alignment with XML Schema (its philosophy and type system). Making a language strongly typed has immense advantages (one advantage could be that debugging cycle is reduced). I also see XSLT 2.0 as a helpful language to write computational stylesheets as well (with the availability of data typing and xsl:function abstraction).. Ofcourse also, if already lot of XSLT 1.0 code is already written and has to be maintained, then there is no choice but to use XSLT 1.0 for those projects.
