If neither variable is in the scope of the other, as appears to be the case in your example, then it's legal in both XSLT 1.0 and XSLT 2.0.

If one local variable is in the scope of another local variable, then this is permitted in XSLT 2.0 but not in XSLT 1.0.

Hi Guys

I use oxygen XML editor and notice some differences in variable scope between MSXML and Saxon

<div class="one">
	<xsl:variable name="foo" select="'bar'"/>

<div class="two"> <xsl:variable name="foo" select="'bar'"/> </div>

If I transform with Saxon, everything is OK. If I transform with MSXML I get duplicate variable error.

Which is correct? (Just curious)
