Hi Toshihiko Makita-san,

You may have a look at :
- Roger Costello's excellent tutorial on Xpath2.0 at http://www.xfront.com/xpath/xpath-2-0.ppt , which I found really helpfull to dig into XSLT2.0.
- zvon XSLT2 references at http://zvon.org/comp/r/ref-XSLT_2.html with some good examples to explain each element

Hope this help,

Toshihiko Makita-san,
Here is a link http://www.dpawson.co.uk/xsl/sect2/bestpractice.html#d2736e448
to an article entitled Best Practice, which reveals XSLT 1.0/2.0
coding practice.
Additionally, http://www.jenitennison.com/xslt/ is a great source of
reference materials for XSLT in general.
There are a couple of others as below:

Hi list,

I'm beginning to attend some stylesheet project that uses XSLT2.0. The
XSLT processor will become Saxon.

In Japan there are no translated XSLT2.0 books. There are only
translations of W3C XSLT2.0 recommendation. But it is not so popular.
As a result the existing XSLT2.0 codes are very poor enough. For
instance it does not use *ANY* as="..." attribute for xsl:variable or
I think it is not XSLT 2.0 stylesheet. From the programmer's perspective
the coding guideline is needed because it is hard for many programmer to
understand large XSLT2.0 (or XPath2.0) specifications from the scratch.
If there is any coding guidelines, they will learn from it the
differences between XSLT1.0 and XSLT2.0 step by step.

Are there any XSLT2.0 coding guidelines for the stylesheet programmer?

Any suggestions are welcome.
