XSLTXT strips out a lot of the noise that comes with using XML for encoding XSLT. Instead it uses Python style indenting to express the nesting structure of statements. Together with some simple improvements in the way that template parameters can be expressed it makes it much easier to create and maintain stylesheets. However, the underlying semantics of the XSLT language have not been changed and both bidirectional conversion of stylesheets and direct processing of XSLTXT is possible. Take a look at the Homepage for some examples.

Improved Exception Messages
     posted by alexmoffat, Thu 31 Oct 2002 04:27:50 AM UTC - 0 replies

To make it easier to correct syntax errors in xsltxt files I've added location information to the SyntaxException. You should now get a line number and indent that is at least close to the location of the error when the syntax of the xsltxt file is incorrect. The actual syntax problems are detected by the xslt processor, not the xsltxt reader, so this system depends somewhat on the processor reporting problems soon after it is fed tokens.
