RE: 1.0 and 2.0 and suitability for tasks

The only possible benefit in using XSLT 1.0 is maturity: there are more processors available and the language specification is more stable. Set against that, the productivity benefits of 2.0 are very substantial, and apply across a broad range of applications. Assessment of risk in moving to a new technology is something that each organisation has to do for itself. I personally find it difficult to understand why some organisations are much more prepared to take these risks than others - it seems to have very little to do with any objective assessment, more on subjective attitudes. There are a lot of organisations using Saxon 8.x successfully for applications that are definitely mission-critical; at the same time I can't fault someone who advises against it on grounds of caution.
