Mike Kay did the Knight's Tour in both XSLT and XQuery. Download Saxon 
and you get both in the examples directory.

Evan Lenz did all of the XQuery Use Cases in XSLT, but his TransQuery 
site is no longer on the web.

I've written a bunch of things in both XSLT and XQuery, and have one or 
two programs I could send you for comparison. The non-trivial examples 
are bigger than I should post to a list like this.
