Hi all (and maybe especially  <mailto:mike@xxxxxxxxxxxx> @Michael Kay)

In implementing XSLT 3 conversions for XProc 3.0 pipelines we ran into this

What is the global context item for an XSLT 3.0 stylesheet when none is set

Ibve tried to find it in the XSLT 3 spec but found it hard to find the
definite answer. In practice however (for XML conversions)  I noticed itbs
the document-node of the main input document. But is that because the XSLT 3
spec says so or just a convenient default of Saxon?

Hope anyone can help us out,

Erik Siegel
