Re:  is XPath 3.1 xml-to-json() function useful
Hi Martin,
   Thanks for the answer.

Deriving from your XSLT stylesheet, I wrote following that works,

<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"



    <xsl:output method="text"/>

    <xsl:template match="root">
            <map key="{local-name()}">
                <array key="val">

    <xsl:template match="val">
        <number><xsl:value-of select="."/></number>

    <xsl:template match="/">
        <xsl:variable name="json-xml">
        <xsl:value-of select="xml-to-json($json-xml, map { 'indent' :
true() })"/>


If I write, <number>{.}</number> in above stylesheet, as you've suggested
instead of mine <number><xsl:value-of select="."/></number>, I get
following error

xml-to-json: Invalid number: {.}
(produced by Saxon PE)

Any idea, why this is so?
