Re: Frustrating with XSL-T 2.0 [wasRe: Re: Spam
Nothing about 2.0 frustrates me overly much. When I made that comment, I was thinking that the learning curve for the new version might frustrate some people. There's nothing particularly tough about it, but it's the nature of the software industry that most of us have to learn under tight deadlines. The other source of potential frustration that comes to mind is the differences between 1.0 (and 1.1) and 2.0. When something doesn't work quite like it used to, that can be frustrating. And the more subtle the difference, the more frustrating it can be. For the most part, 2.0 has relieved my frustrations. for-each-group, analyze-string, tokenize(), min() and max(), upper-case() and lower-case(), and other instructions and functions have all saved me bunches of time and made for shorter files. Notice how these items embody grouping, regular expressions, and string manipulation. For me, those are the three big improvements of 2.0.

That comment woke my interest. What do people find frustrating with XSL-T 2.0, as opposed to XSL-T 1.0? (I'm not questioning that XSL-T 2.0 may be frustrating or not be "perfect", I'm just curious on people's experiences.) Cheers, Frans
