Christof's software sounds good, but I can't connect to his site
at the moment.

In the meantime, here's a stylesheet that I use to help
me maintain a system with 2000+ templates.

It produces a nested, static summary XML file that lists
the includes, imports, templates and call-templates.

I run a second stylesheet with that XML file as input that creates
a set of web pages with forward and back links.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="";

<xsl:output method="xml" indent="yes"/>

<xsl:template match="text()"/>

<xsl:template match="/">

<xsl:template match="/" mode="child">

<xsl:template match="xsl:import">
  <import name="{@href}">
    <xsl:apply-templates select="document(@href)" mode="child"/>

<xsl:template match="xsl:include">
  <include name="{@href}">
    <xsl:apply-templates select="document(@href)" mode="child"/>

<xsl:template match="xsl:template">
    <xsl:copy-of select="@name | @match"/>

    <xsl:for-each select=".//xsl:call-template">
      <calls name="{@name}"/>
