RE: Definite list of XSLT 2.0 processors?

And even more so (a) the LAMP community, and (b) those who want to use XSLT client-side. The problem of course is that (1) these communities expect everything to be free of charge to the end-user, but (2) no-one has an effective business model for creating software that users are not prepared to pay for. (Recruiting an army of volunteers may sometimes work, but it needs strong leadership.) Intel did have a standalone XSLT 1.0 product that you could purchase for $150 or so, but I don't think that was a sustainable business model for them, and they withdrew it. Saxonica can survive quite nicely selling a few hundred copies a year; Intel and IBM can't. Regards, Michael Kay http://www.saxonica.com/ http://twitter.com/michaelhkay
