XSLT Elements

This section of the Saxon documentation lists the standard XSLT elements, all of which are supported in Saxon stylesheets, and gives brief descriptions of their function. In some cases the text gives information specific to the Saxon implementation. For extension elements provided with the Saxon product, see Extensions.

Saxon implements the XSLT version 2.0 Recommendation from the World Wide Web Consortium: see Conformance. The information here is designed to give a summary of the features: for the full specification, consult the official standard.

This section of the documentation also describes new elements in the draft XSLT 3.0 specifications, with notes on the extent to which they are implemented in Saxon.
