I almost agree with Andrew, that it's not possible to unit test a XSLT
stylesheet, which is like JUnit testing.

I guess, Florent that your unit test scripts will duplicate XSLT code
from the *actual* stylesheet ? Whereas, ideal unit testing will be
(JUnit like) - the unit test script invokes the main stylesheet (which
doesn't have any testing code, i.e. it's pure) and supplies some data
to it (an input XML for e.g.), and do assertions.

Please correct me if I am wrong.
