I think this is mainly because it makes it easier to evolve the code as it develops over time. > xsl:choose doesn't cut the mustard when you want multiple things done rather than to exit as soon as one condition is true. I am about to rip out one of the few chooses that I have allowed to survive for this very reason and because the template is already rather long - see earlier remarks about implications for testing and I don't want it to get even longer.
