I will report this to Altova tomorrow via their ticket system. They
are continually updating xmlspy, but I have not seen a running list. I
would be interested in seeing dif list also. xmlspy is a great editor
and has a decent xslt processor. Saxon, by far is the best. It's fast
and reliable. Saxonica (Michael Kay) is very good at providing the
very best xslt 2.0 processor.

In response to this... we're using AltovaXML at my work, since its
license is very business-friendly and it doesn't require a managed-
code base (Java or .NET) to run. However, I've noticed that when
compared to Saxon, it gives different output in some places, and for
the few times I've looked into it, the error is within AltovaXML.
(Not to mention it's slow compared to Saxon.)
Is there a list somewhere of known issues within AltovaXML's XSLT
2.0 engine? Although we're not using it very often at my work, it'd
be nice to know what pitfalls to avoid.
And while I'm asking, does anyone know of a similar list for
Transformiix (Firefox's XSLT engine) and Opera's XSLT engine? I know
I've asked for a standalone of Opera's engine before, but this time
I'd just like to know what these two don't support. I know
Transformiix doesn't recognize the namespace:: axis, but that's

Subject: Re: Counting with xsl:key
Thanks... works perfect. Actually xmlSPY throws an error if the select
statement is in the <xsl:number>
<xsl:number level="any" count="figure[not(@inline='true')]"
select="key('fig-key', @href)" />
Saxon runs it as expected... Saxon rocks
