Re: debugging xslt
In addition to the XSLT IDEs already mentioned, some XSLT developers use a standalone XPath tool for testing XPath expressions. Features in such a tool that could help you and that might be missing from more general purpose tools : 1. An XPath debugger to step-through or into your expression 2. Context-aware auto-completion 3. Support for XPath variables 4. Fine control over namespaces and the context node 5. (A nice to have) Simultaneous testing/result-viewing over multiple documents 6. Facilties for naming, grouping, commenting and saving your expressions for further testing/development If you search online for 'XPath Tool' you will find a wide selection listed, including the freeware SketchPath product that I've developed (there's also a commercial product - SketchPath-Pro).
