Re: [xsl] XSLT 2.0 courses?

Dear Liam,

Who says I am uncertain? I merely ask you to consider the question.

Posing it should not be taken to imply that I believe either in
"self-commenting code" or that I think the best measure of what makes a
good path is its string length (either long or short). As for your dogma
that the code should be written with its future readers and maintainers in
mind -- I agree with that so much, I might have come up with it myself. :-/

Cheers, Wendell

... and of course this can be simplified to

$a, $b[empty($a)], $c[empty(($a,$b))]

can't it?

Your uncertainty indicates that it isn't clear enough to be maintained
easily, and i'd want to avoid it.

Part of the XSLT 3 course i have run is the concept i call “the
rhetoric of XSLT”—a consideration of who will be reading the code can
help to determine how “maths” you can make it.
