Re:  Naming conventions for xsl/xslt stylesheets
I think technically, you can have any extension for your XSLT files
(except you should avoid using extensions used by popular softwares -
like .doc, .xls etc).

But I think it's a good practice to name pure XSLT files with .xslt
extension. .xsl extension is normally used for files having XSLT +
XSL-FO code.

(but personally, I use extension .xsl even for pure XSLT files -- as
it doesn't really matter, and I can type file names quickly).

just a questions concerning the naming conventions for XSLT stylesheets:

Do XSL stylesheets ALWAYS have to be in a file with filen name extension *.xsl ?

What about XSLT docs in *.xslt or even in *.xml files?

Is there a must on how to name XSLT stylesheets or only a recommendation ?

Are there differences in handling between XSLT 1.x and 2.0 versions ?
