Hey Abel (especially),

At 12:23 PM 9/27/2007, I wrote:
Heck: a micropipelining approach would look something like:

<xsl:variable name="name-content">
<xsl:apply-templates select="para" mode="normalize-space"/>
<xsl:variable name="ref-content">
<xsl:apply-templates select="following-sibling::entry[1]/para" mode="normalize-space"/>
<entry name="{$name-content}" ref="{$ref-content}" etc... />

I was thinking about this again last night, and I take it back. I don't think this counts as micropipelining either, since the results of processing the nodes are not actually processed again. Unless the implicit cast to a string counts (and I don't think it does).

Indeed, this is a technique that's useful in XSLT 1.0 too, where restrictions on the Result Tree Fragment generally inhibit pipelining.

So far as I know, everything else I said in that post is true. :-)
