Or examine trace output from a transformation.

Yes, debugging is definetly one way to understand a stylesheet, I think sometimes the best way to totally comprehend how some transformation works. But this is some timeconsuming method, and after a couple of minutes one forgets which template came when etc :) So I think debugging and trace output are great to get in-depth knowledge about the stylesheet, but not for getting a first impression or overlook about the XSL. Thanks for your help.
