For the first time one of my clients has released my work for them as open source, and it is an example of my use of XSLT 2.0 constructs. This is in support of an extraction vocabulary used when building templates that harvest information from instances of SportsML ( ). The new library is version 2.0 of SportsMLT:

It is documented using my freely-available XSLStyle environment for embedding DocBook (or DITA or XHTML) in scaffolding in XSLT stylesheets:

... and the end result of the documentation is found here, automatically generated from the XSLT through the XSLStyle stylesheets:

One of the stylesheet fragments illustrates my use of XML 1.1 because some of the legacy data formats for sports scores in newspapers need to use control characters that are not available in XML 1.0.

The project is continuing, and there may be some changes such as a wholesale replacement of the harvesting addressing language of using attributes. The target users of this vocabulary have no knowledge of XSLT or XPath, but the are expected to understand that the information is structured as a tree with familial relationships between the elements. We are awaiting feedback from users as to whether they can understand what they need to do with the attributes or if we have to change things. Perhaps with the XSLT 2.1 "eval" we can offer full XPath addressing for those who know it, but something will still be needed for those who don't.

I'll be pleased to answer any questions off list.

I hope this helps.
