RE: Is a XSLT 2 to 1 transform possible?
> Out of curiosity, could a XSLT 1.0 stylesheet be used to > convert a XSLT 2.0 stylesheet to an equivalent XSLT 1.0 stylesheet? > XSLT 1.0 is Turing-complete so the theoretical answer is yes. (With a proviso that you would need to call out to extensions to handle a few things like unparsed-text() and xsl:result-document). The practical answer, given the number of man-years that I imagine are available to you, is no. Can you imagine what a regular expression engine would look like written in XSLT 1.0 code?
