I'm working on a XSLT-based site which makes pretty extensive use of
includes and whose output differens depending on params passed to it. The
problem I'm having is performance. Since the site can be rendered through a
bunch of different skins and parameters are passed back and forth all the
time output caching or pre-generating doesn't seem viable.

My experience steems mostly from transforming under windows using MSXML or
.Net. There you have the option of compiling stylesheets and caching the
compiled stylesheet in the global cache for better performance but alas the
solution I'm working on now is running on Apache, currently with the
Sablotron parser. So my questions are:

1. What's the best ways to increase performance without caching output? Does
any of the Apache parsers support above mentioned functionality?

2. Which parser should I chose for best performance, from reading some
benchmarks it seems Saxon and XT seems to top the list?
