Well, I read latest post about future of XSL stylesheet programming
and got curious what tools were created for visual editing. I search
through mail archive of xsl-list and ran into post below.

As it seems to me that is pretty harsh task to create a visual editor
for XSL stylesheets (comparative to Visual Studio one for ASP.NET). I
think there are too much peculiarities and differences between
translators, specifications and formatting engines.

But there could be effective tools for some specific tasks. I
downloaded the announced RenderX VisualXSL application and I think it
is a kind of it. Pretty simple and I think rather useful tool for
creating form-liked documents. I hope they will improve it to make
XPath editing more comfortable.
