MetaStylesheets, On how, and why, XSLT can be used to transform XSLT (or XML Schema, or XQuery) — presentation by Michael Kay at XML 2006

It’s quite often the case that someone asks about real-world scenarios or use-cases of using XSLT.

For those of us, who did not attend XML 2006 and Michael Kay’s presentation, here’s the text:

And the slides:

I am amazed at the huge expressiveness of this 8-page presentation, describing in detail three large-scale real-world use-cases for dynamically generating XSLT stylesheets, comparing the scope and appropriateness of XSLT and XQuery, managing to explain the strengths of FXSL in just one sentence (I remember a question by one of my colleagues why and where the FXSL approach would be useful – after a 40+ minutes FXSL presentation), speaking about XProc, …, etc.

Enjoy.
