Re: Microsoft XML Team blog: XSLT 2.0
Agreed. That was a *TON* of work on Dr. Kay's part. This was an area that, through the help, advice, and testing of friends (credit: FXSL/Dimitre Novatchev in whom without, it would have never been known where the problems with the original Saxon.NET project were, and how best to fix them such that they could probably pass the FXSL tests), I came to discover was doable, but required a lot of time, effort, and re-testing to get right. "Close" was as far as I ever got, which goes to show how much extra effort was put forth by Dr. Kay to deliver this wonderful feature to the rest of us.

I couldn't agree more. :)
