Although, I'm very inexperienced at writing XSL stylesheets, I come from
a background of using a code generators and my experience tells me that
code generators produce 90% of the code automatically and with 10% of
code needing tweaking.

Code-generators need to be able to include the hand crafted solution in
the generated code, so that once a manual fix has been added to a
module, it does not need to re-applied each time that module is

I would expect that those people who have a good understanding of
writing hand crafted code will be the best at using a code generator as
they truly understand the generated code. My prediction is that if XSLT
code generators become widely accepted then XSL skills will be needed to
use them effectively.
