And it's just as tough for those of us who are moonlighting authors!

I haven't yet decided how to tackle this problem in doing an XSLT 2.0
Programmer's Reference. It will almost certainly have to be less
comprehensive than the 1.0 version, or no-one will buy it.
I've got various ideas, and you'll have to wait and see what I (and the
publishers) come up with.
