Hmmm... Weird. At one point, if not mistaken,
@http://blogs.msdn.com/xmlteam/archive/2007/01/29/xslt-2-0.aspx > what now
Microsoft contributed thousands of person-hours to the W3C efforts that
developed these standards and iscommitted assist with the further
development of XML standards at W3C.
Once included a statement similar to "MSFT had nothing to do with the
development of the XSLT 2.0 spec, though did contribute to the development
of both XPath 2.0 and XQuery."
Apparently (unless it was in a different post than the one linked above)
it was changed? Not sure, but if the statement, as you suggest, was
incorrect, then it would make sense to have corrected it.
So it's not as if they're a stranger to the process.
Oh, of course. This was definitely a part of my point: "MSFT is coming at
the specification from a somewhat neutral perspective", 'somewhat neutral'
being the key take away.
In short: I agree, though was 99.100% positive before now of the above
mentioned statement. Thanks for helping to clarify, Evan!
