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).
