Hi Ashish:

There is no direct relationship between XML file size and performance in
an arbitrary stylesheet.

As with anything, though, it's certainly possible to write templates
that operate in O(N^2), and it may be hard to create performant
templates depending on the complexity of your XML and the complexity of
the output.

The short answer is, you should experiment :)  Try creating a
proof-of-concept and see how well it performs.  If not well, be sure to
ask if there are ways you can improve it.

This is very important question for us.
We are trying to determine if the performance of a transformation is
affected by the size and heirarchy of an XML file.  That is will there
be a performance degradation when the size of the XML grows and we need
to access data which lies deeper in the heirarchy.
What are the exact reasons performance degrades and how can it be
prevented by good programming?
