But let me first preface this with the following... The goal of the
Saxon.NET project is to provide to the .NET community an API that is
100% compliant with that of Dr. Michael Kay's latest Saxon API and
that can be used to implement a XSLT 2.0, XPath 2.0, and XQuery 1.0
transformation via any language and subsequent compiler that
implements a solution supported by version 1.1+ of the ..NET
I'm not interested in anything MS-specific myself. The whole point of
what I'm doing is to provide alternatives to MS-centric workflows (the
academy is totally dominated by MS, and I'm tired of it). So document
formats I'm interested in are DocBook, TEI, OpenOffice.
If others want to pick this up for integration with Word/WordML,
though, that'd be good, so it's nice to have Saxon.NET as an
alternative. I'm thinking Mike's suggestion of a web service is
sounding like the best medium-term solution, though.
If not now, there will be XSLT 2.0 solutions, via your desired
mechanism, in the months, not years, to come.
