David et al,

Brilliant! I just *love* this thought of XSLT with more readable syntax.

Not everyone can afford Oxygen, etc., and even though an IDE makes typing easier, it doesn't help with reading it much (other than the folding). I've been using XSLT for years, and my eyes still glaze over reading other people's code.

How about something like what Groovy did for Java?
