 Re: XSLT3.0: Predictable recovery of errors when  roll
I agree with you, the suggestion of using xsl:variable is not fully worked
through and should probably be removed. All the examples I can think of would
be more easily handled by using a nested xsl:try/xsl:catch without the
rollback-output="no" option.
