Re: xsltproc/LibXSLT - non-compliance?
And the definitions of element-available() and function-available() don't say that much, so you can't rely on automatic conversion to just happen.Yes, although to be honest I would expect them to happen in this case (as apparently would implementors of other xslt systems.)
The very first sentence of section 4 of XSLT 1.0 (Expressions) reads:
XSLT uses the expression language defined by XPath [XPath]. -- http://www.w3.org/TR/xslt#section-Expressions
The very first sentence of section 12 of XSLT 1.0 (Additional Functions) reads:
This section describes XSLT-specific additions to the core XPath function library. -- http://www.w3.org/TR/xslt#add-func
Can we infer from this that section 3.2 of XPath 1.0, including rules for type conversion, applies to XSLT 1.0, including XSLT functions?
Isn't this like the Letter and the Spirit of the Law?
