XSL - Documentation

 XSL - Documentation

I was looking for the most common way to document XSL-Stylesheets and
found a lot of small solutions in the web, which belongs to one of these

1) use of comments, similar to JavaDoc
2) use of an extension namespace
3) literate programming

Since comments are restricted to pure text and literate programming is a
little bit out of my scope, I ended up with the use of an extension
namespace (XSLTdoc), which works fine for me.

There are several tools out in the wild, but as far as I can see there
is no widely spread solution. For example, OxygenXML supports none of them.

So, here are my questions:

1) Which tool do you use to create stylesheet documentations? What are
the pros and cons?

2) Is there a need (and a chance) for the xsl community to focus on one
singe tool, may be to encourage the software vendors to implement support?
