David et al,
Brilliant! I just*love* this thought of XSLT with more readable syntax.
It's been suggested several times, and there have been one or two implementations. That is also more or less one description of Xquery.
I think one reason they've all failed (apart from Xquery which doesn't describe itself that way) is that XSLT is in XML _for a reason_ It makes handling templates consisting of XML fragments entirely natural (within the unnatural context that is an XML parser).
