Well I just thought that context sensitive help could be improved as
it clearly was of little benefit to the developer. It doesn't have to
be correct all the time, but should give you the most bang for your
buck concisely to aid recall. Surely that's a good idea or would you
rather everyone have your book beside the keyboard or memorized? LOL
;)

For the record I read your very good xslt 2.0 book long ago when learning xslt.
