Here are links to two realtively inexpensive packages that include XSLT debuggers:

I generally put in nodes in the stylesheet that emit debugging information (usually the value of some elementor variable, or a count(), but if you need something with a little more insight into what is going on during the transform, these will provide it.

Subject:  [xsl] Debugging XSLT + Introduction

I just wanted  to introduce myself.   My name is Tom and I am a Java
programmer for a bank in NYC.     I am currently working on a reporting
framework ( well sort of framework )  that was done by a consulting team
and left to us to support and to create new reports.   We get data passed
to us from a vendor solution which we need to format into html and pdf (
using FO ).   I have done some XSLT 1.0 for reformatting XML and extracting
and replacing data using XPATH mostly from within java.   I also used
velocity to produce XML using templates.

I am really, as you can see,  not a pro at XSLT 2.0 and am sort of learning
under fire.   I want to thank you all for your patience with my questions.

One of the comments/ questions that I have is that I am having problems
debugging XSLT.   With Java or most other programming languages I could
step through with a debugger or add debug statements.   Could you recommend
a good way to approach debugging problematic XSLTs?
