[xsl] Need feedback on XSL/XML editor/debugger

I have recently released an open source, visual XSL editor/debugger http://ag101.sourceforge.net).
It is written in Java and built on the Pollo XML editor (http://pollo.sourceforge.net).
By building on Pollo, virtually any document that has a DTD, XSD or other
schema file defined for it can be edited and validated (any well-formed
XML doc can, of course, be edited).

AG101 allows the user to visually set breakpoints in the XSL code and step
through the source code. At breakpoints the values of variables, selects,
etc. can be inspected.

AG101 makes a great XSL learning tool, as it shows the allowable elements
at any given point. Because it is open source, it can be easily customized
for specific XML/XSL tasks.

AG101 has the ability to define a pipe wherein multiple XSL stages can be
linked together.

I have also added regular expression capability and a file "while-read"
element to allow the processing of flat files into XML format.

It is at the alpha stage. I have been using it to do productive work for
at least two months now. I am looking for some basic feedback (like does
it run on your machine). Of course, anyone who wants to help on the development
will be welcomed, too.

Thanks for any help.
