Thank you for your response. I was reading that XSLT2.0 is still not stable. What are your comments on this? We are trying to make a decision as to whether it is worth moving to xslt 2.0 Vs. xslt 1.0 and their advantages and disadvantages.

Features or benefits?
At the "features" level: masses. The quick wins tend to be grouping capability, multiple output files, regular expressions, date and time handling, stylesheet functions, temporary trees, sequence data types. The language has roughly doubled in size, so it's hard to give a short answer.
At the "benefits" level:
(a) productivity, through
(i) generally fewer lines of code for the same task (ii) faster debugging cycle because of type checking (especially with schema-awareness) (iii) faster learning curve because there's less need for weird workarounds to common problems
(b) robustness, again through type checking
(c) applicability to a wider range of tasks, e.g. up-conversion.
(d) performance, particularly for tasks such as grouping that are now supported by built-in capability.
