The Business Case for XSLT 2.0

Prolific writer Kurt Cagle writes about The Business Case for XSLT 2.0. Kurt has a lot to say, and he says it really well. Some of the new features of XSLT 2.0 include:

  • The concept of a sequence of XML elements as a first-class XSLT object
  • Better regular expression support
  • User Defined XPath functions
  • Conditional Expressions
  • Date/Time Manipulation
  • Complex Grouping
  • Multiple Outputs
  • Type Awareness

Kurt covers all of these (and more) in his treatise.
