My tendency is to use comments to logically partition the XSLT.

A few <!-- Section description --> rather than the inline comments arrangement.  Then again I am a big believer in small template (for matches), and tend to include a comment above each named template.

Subject: [xsl] Should You Comment XSLT And If So, How?


I joined this list what seems like several weeks ago now, at the outset 
of a project I am working on ( I've 
seen several fascinating conversations taking place here, in addition 
to getting several truly excellent answers to what must have seemed 
like incredibly dumb questions. In short, I'm fairly wowed and realize 
I'm surrounded by rather enlightened beings.

Thank you all for your time, effort, and sense of humor.

As you can see by the Subject line, I'd like to know if you think you 
should comment XSTL. And if so, How?

I'd like to say "here's what I do" but what provoked me to ask this 
question was a realization that although XML can be commented, I don't 
really find myself needing it or making much use of it when writing 
XSLT (which is XML).  The problem is, I've never seen an XML 
application, just sample code. So, I was wondering, should you comment 
XSLT and if so, How?

I sincerely look forward to your answers.
