Re: XQuery Updates in XSLT
>>> Yes. It's a few lines of easily readable XQuery Update, versus a few >>> complete XSLT templates and an explanation of how the identity transform >>> works. > XQuery Update solution: [snip] > XSLT 2.0 solution: [snip] So, what is the prize for the "best" solution? (separate prize for defining "best" that everyone agrees on) This is already an old argument... those who use XQuery day in day out prefer the XQuery solution, those who use XSLT will prefer that (but if you're modifying a file in an XML database you'd use XQuery, if you're using the filesystem, probably XSLT). So it doesn't really matter. (btw, it's funny that you think an explanation of the identity template is needed, but not XQuery update syntax? Neither are exactly intuitive...! ) -- Andrew Welch http://andrewjwelch.com Kernow: http://kernowforsaxon.sf.net/
