NO. Of course xalan can handle globals and i am using this
feature with xalan too..
I say, that some aspects of xslt can be done with saxon,
which can't be done with xalan and vice versa, e.g. there
is a (possible) bug with entity resolving within style sheets,
that is (partially) solved when using saxon...

interested people can see:

(last chapter focusses on saxon)

The survival tips adress newbies. expereinced users may
use different (more efficient) strategies...

i prefer the "cocoon developers handbook" because it really goes
into real life examples with code snippets and so on. It adresses
my programmers needs quite well. Of course it doesn't go into the
depest secrets of cocoon, but cocoon is anyway a running target,
hence using the book plus the cocoon wiki fits at least my basic
