You could also use Stylus Studio. See www.---.com/ It is very conformant to standards, provides good cross-platform support by letting you validate with several XSD validators including XSV, Xerces-C++, Xerces-J and Saxonica. www.---.com/open_xsd_validation.html It supports XSLT 1 and XSLT 2, across a variety of engines including Saxon 8 -B and -SA, Saxon 6, Xalan, System.Xml from .Net, and more. www.---.com/xslt.html It supports a variety of XQuery engines as well, including DDXQ and Saxonica. www.---.com/xquery.html You can cross-platform debug and profile code as well - you can even debug Java extension functions by stepping and setting breakpoints and going between XSLT and Java in the same call stack. And we offer free support on the Stylus Studio Developer Network, at www.---.com/SSDN/ On 05-12-2006 5:09 AM, daz_oldham wrote: > Hi > > I was just wondering what people thought of XMLSpy">XMLSpy and the XML Suite > that Alotva do and if it is worth shelling out for it.
