"E-XSLT" is a term that's kind of been coined along the
way during discussion on this list. It stands for:

"XSLT with tag libraries of Extension Elements"

The XSLT Extension Element feature is documented
in the spec at:

This defines how a stylesheet/transform can 
identify "extension-element-prefixes" that
key the XSLT Processor into the fact that
certain XML namespaces represent libraries
of extension elements like:

  <xsl:transform xmlns:xsl=""
  <quickquotes:get-quote symbols="AAPL GE HLTH"/>

The implementation of the "get-quote"
extension element in the "mylib" library
gets a chance to do arbitrary processing and
then (perhaps) write some XML nodes as
its output into the result page.

So the result might be:
