Ofcourse, I think some form of parsing can be done in functional languages. But can an *XPath 2.0* parser be written in XSLT 2.0?
I think the parser has to produce a parse tree. Can this be done with XSLT 2.0? Producing a parse tree from grammar input requires lot of state management, which could be difficult with XSLT 2.0..

Functional languages can parse just as well as imperative languages.
