Sorry, but forget JSON. What is XSLT mainly being used for these days? Is it shrinking in use or growing? I notice Michale Kay's list of XSLT2 processors does not include anything from Microsoft, so I assume they are still not going for it:

Saxon, Altova, IBM, Intel, MarkLogic, XQSharp.
Saxon-CE (client edition) for the browser now in beta.
Gestalt still exists but development has ceased.

I use XSLT for tech pubs-type documentation systems and find it very useful. Where do you use it Mr. Welch?
