If you use Eclipse for your Java development, I would recommend Oxygen
XML/XSLT Debugger <>. It is available as an
Eclipse plugin, and the debugger does everything you could ever want, as
far as XSLT 1.0 is concerned. I haven't yet used it for XSLT 2.0, but it
supports it, and I have no doubt it will help me when I get time to learn
2.0. It also allows you to choose between XSLT processors, although
obviously the debugger can only work with those that support debugging
(not MSXML, for example).

It's also available as a standalone app for Windows and Mac, IIRC.
