At this moment I'm writing for my company a paper about the performance of
stylesheet processing. It covers items like generation of the  xml,
embedding of the xslt processing in the application but also some simple
tricks about xslt syntax. Such as use xsl:key. according Michael Kay's book
'it is likely to make access faster' (page 244 second edition). Furthermore
store the results of calculations in variables if you need them more often.
The most important however is keep the XSLT as simple as possible. In my
company XML is generated on the fly out of database applications with the
help of Java. So I advise to implement the business logic in Java before
generating the XML and to implement the transformation logic in the XSLT.
This is also good for maintainability. XSLT experience is still quite low
for most programming colleagues, while java knowledge is high.
