Hi Max,

There are always ways to get tool A running on system X if you put in enough effort. But the LAMP community will only embrace XSLT 2.0 the minute a good working, cross-platform, interfaceable (sp?), compilable C/C++ version is around. Interfacing with either .NET or JVM is not part of their general parlor (while of course, the LAMP'ers that really want to, can take the path you set out).

As Michael Kay explained, most hosting providers are rather minimalistic, mainly to keep resources per client as low as possible. Not too many of them support Mono or MS .Net Framework. Even less support Java. I'm afraid, to get the LAMP or even WAMP community to switch from XSLT 1.0 to 2.0 they'll need another bone than any that's currently available.

Kind regards,
Abel Braaksma

Saxon.NET is 'native' thanks to IKVM.NET

You can run Saxon.NET on Linux using Mono. You can run Mono on Apache using mod_mono. No issues with MySQL. You can run PHP on Mono using

There it is, XSLT 2.0 on LAMP, although there's nothing native about it :-)
