In another thread word is out that some work on XSLT 2.1 is going on. I don't find anything about it at W3C perhaps I should look better. How official is it that an XSLT 2.1 is in the making? Is it possible to propose new features, etc.? We know so far that something like <xsl:mode default-action="copy"/> is being looked at making things like (I have changed "copy" to "identity template" to make things more clear) possible: <xsl:mode default-action="identity template"/> <xsl:template match="foo"/> I can't resist the temptation to propose something similar making use of my "true" identity template for XSLT 2.0, http://www.xmlplease.com/identity-template.xsl, explained in this tutorial: http://www.xmlplease.com/identity-template. The "true identity template" (an xslt stylesheet of several templates) is 500 lines long! Nice if we could use it like this: <xsl:mode default-action="true identity template"/> Nice if we could use a modified "true" identity transformation on let us say XHTML documents (important use case) without having to bother about how to get original XML declarations and DOCTYPES recreated, how to get rid of default attributes having been copied out from the DTDs, etc. Cheers, Jesper Tverskov http://www.xmlplease.com
