To shift to a what I consider a very important, related topic:
It has been many years since I have adopted writing complete programs as one XPath expressions, something like this: ... Now this has been facilitated even further by providing "let expressions" in XPath 2.1. I will never have to need to define a separate xsl:variable whose value is a sequence -- this was not possible without having let expressions in XPath.
However, I cannot find adequate debugger support for this style of programming.
The whole program above is treated as one single statement
