 XSL 2.0 and .NET and VB
Hi All

Our company has a lot of .NET and VB apps that generate XML. Many of our
apps allow the user to select which XSL to use to transform the XML into
an HTML file for display. Right now, if you're using a native windows
app, the transform is done server side, but if you're running a web app,
the transform is done client side.

I want to move to XSLT 2.0, as I have to do a lot of summing of
calculated fields and I'm tired of having to bloat everything with
recursive templates. I also want all the other goodies in XSLT 2.0.

Furthermore, I want to move to 100% server-side transforms so I don't
have to worry about XSLT support in the myriad of browser out there and
what transformation engine is being used. I would also like to use EXSLT
but there's no way the extensions could be managed with client-side
transforms. IF I'm doing everything server side, I can control the
transform engine, the extensions, etc. and send nothing but pure (and
simple) HTML to the browsers.

Now to the crux of the problem. My developers are telling me there's no
support for XSLT 2.0 in .NET and VB. Is this the case. If so, any idea
when Bill is going to support it?

Thanks in advance
