Just to note (as Sebastian already has done, but incorrectly) that there 
*are* _more_ than two implementations of XSLT 2.0 processors (with more 
on the way).

Michael Kay (and he should know) notes some of them in this mailing list 

namely, Saxon, Altova, IBM Websphere, Intel SOA Expressway, Gestalt, and 
notes back in last May that Marklogic were announcing one soon.


notes some more but these are through including processors like saxon in 
the framework... though it mentions XQSharp which provides another .Net 
XSLT2 framework, I believe.
