...Have you tried XSLTC. This basically allows you to apply a compiled
form of your stylesheet in your transformations. Both xalan and saxon ship with XSLT compilers.
I'm asked occasionally whether I plan to do a Saxon compiler - more strictly, a bytecode generator. At present, I don't: I think it would slow down the rate of progress on the product considerably, if only because code generators are notoriously hard to debug. I prefer to spend the effort on improving the query execution strategies, which can produce much bigger potential savings. In any case, I think that for most people memory is more of a constraint than processing speed.
