Hi Albert,

I'm using the Xselerator XSLT IDE (http://www.vbxml.com/xselerator/default.asp or

Just try it and you're never going stop using it -- the Xseleraor has a very nice
XSLT editor with syntax colouring, intellisense, three different views on the text,
XPath builder, wizards, snippets,... and more. Although the Debugger is working only
with MSXML at present, it would be still helpful to you if you're writing fully
conformant XSLT stylesheets.

The Xselerator supports applying the transformation with multiple XSLT processors.
I'm regularly switching between MSXML and Saxon, never having to leave the
Xselerator environment.

It should be straightforward to specify on its options screen the necessary data, so
Xalan will be used for the transformations.

Just try it and I believe you'll not be disappointed.
