That's great :)

I guess, xsl:call-template is retained in XSLT 2.0 due to backward
compatibility with XSLT 1.

xsl:call-template looks to me like a "procedure" (it computes, and
provides the result where it's called. It looks to me like an
executable macro, having access to all XSLT 2 instructions available
in a sequence constructor, with parameter support!), while
xsl:function looks *like a function* in traditional sense (with a
capability to return something).

I can also see, that call-template can have tunnel parameters, while
xsl:function cannot.

For sure, I can see overlaps in capabilities of xsl:function and
call-template. But xsl:call-template has been enhanced, that it's 1.0
version.

Thanks, for the explanation.

sorry, about that :)
