Re: XSLT 2.0 has arrived
you mean like transforming xml:-) I was (and still am, really) highly
I have tried it, and the only thing that jumps out at me is the ability to use regular expressions to break apart badly marked up data. Otherwise, most of what I do can be well handled by XSLT 1.
I also find user interface concerns of processors to be an important characteristic. Browsers work (finally) and so does xsltproc. Both only support XSLT 1. Saxon I can only make work with a bunch of annoying Java classpath voodoo. That's enough extra pain for using XSLT 2 for simple jobs, that I'm far less inclined to do so.
