> then it is a pretty serious drawback of the Altova processor. That seems a fairly harsh statement given that there is absolutely nothing in the XSLT specifcation that suggests that a warning should be raised for this expression. Of course a system might raise all kinds of warnings and/or coding hints to that are not mandated by the specification, but the primary role of an XSLT system is surely to implement the spec, not to offer general programming help over and above what the language specifies. It may be that you think that the expression should be in error, but in that case your complaint should be with the XSLT Working Group who specified it otherwise, not with system implementors who implement what the spec says.
