I bet everyone still uses <xsl:stylesheet> over <xsl:transform> (I know I do...even though it makes far more sense to use the latter!)You could use <xsl:transform> for a data-centric stylesheet(?) and <xsl:stylesheet> for a stylesheet that creates an XSL-FO document or something similar.
This would indicate what kind of stylesheet it is; but it may confuse many people, that don't know the alias <xsl:transform>.
I think 'stylesheet' is the wrong term all round really.
A question: when referring to an XSLT file, is there any other term to
use than 'stylesheet' that's more accurate?
