Subject Re: XSL TagLib

We've got quite a few XSL taglibs now ;-)

There's the old XSL taglib here which is a bit crufty these days. There's
XTags which comes with <xtags:style> which uses JAXP1.1 so works with Xalan
and Saxon as well as an <xtags:xalanStyle> which uses the old Xalan 1 API
for backwards compatability.

Then there's JSTL (the JSP standard tag library) which comes with XML tags
which will ultimately supercede XTags as the standard JSP tags for XML,
XPath and XSLT. The tags have close integration with the core JSTL tags, the
new Expression Language support and IO.

So I guess you could say we're at version 3.0 of XSLT tags now. It might be
worth taking a look at the XSLT tags in JSTL and seeing if you've any ideas
on how they can be improved.
