   Re: [xml-dev] ANN: XSLT Standard Library v1.2.1

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

In terms of functionality there is some overlap in the date-time, math 
and string modules.
One goal is to ensure that where there is overlap the XSLTSL uses the 
same API
(for portability of stylesheets).  There is also significant difference 
in functionality,
since XSLTSL is *not* an extension library (eg. XSLTSL cannot implement 

In terms of packaging they are quite different.  To use EXSLT your 
processor of
choice must implement the EXSLT extensions.  However, XSLTSL is just a
bunch of XSL stylesheets, and so may be used by any conformant 

In terms of interface they are also quite different, due to the 
limitations of XSLT v1.0.
XSLTSL is defined in terms of named templates, whereas EXSLT defines 
functions.  Future development will make use of XSLT 2.0 functions.
