I was incorrect in the difference noted between xalan and XT. The
difference was XT does not support the "key" function. I'm assuming this
is because it was finished before the XSLT spec.

Thanks - Allen

I don't know what you mean by dynamic template names but if I guess
correctly then that should not be supported by any parser should it
(unless the XSLT system has extension functions providing this). xt can
be called a "compliant" xslt system in any case, development of xt
finished before the XSLT spec was completed.

Note that it's not really the parser that you are concerned about here,
many of the systems can use different XML parsers (eg any sax compliant

If you are using an extension feature in an extension namespace for one
particular system, then clearly it will only work on that system.
