this post is an interesting take on how to use XSLT for TDD. i've grown to just plain 'think' in XSLT. it helps me view things in a different kind of 'modeling language' and i like it, personally.

this quote stuck out at me:

On a side note, I think XSLT is important to consider one part of your toolkit. I’ve seem many people disregard using XSLT for small processing of XML documents because of the fear it would be slow. I’ve also heard smart folks say, "premature optimization is the root of all evil", so it is possible immediate aversion to using XSLT is unwarranted.

i totally agree. that's why my exyus web engine uses XSLT as an essential part of the process of accepting requests and producing responses.
