Thanks, sounds interesting!  Now that I only have basic knowledge about
XQuery, could you tell me

* how to use XSL transformations from within XQuery
* where to find such functional extensions

Then, I'm not so sure whether XQuery is the right solution for my problem, as
the processing order in which I do most of my XML->RDF extraction is a
depth-first recursive traversal of the input tree, i.e. what XSLT gives me for

Thanks in advance,
