XSLT Development Tools?

Hi group, searching in the Internet I found two products for XML which
incorporate a very robust debugger for XSL/XSLT, I would like you to see
these products and then, give me your opinion about the development
environment or recommend me some other that you know.

XML IDE's
- http://xslt-process.sourceforge.net

If you're willing to try Beta software there is also an XSL debugger
included in Visual Studio 2005 Professional and above which gives you the
ultimate debugging experience which is stepping from yrou C# or VB code
directly into your XSLT transforms and from your transforms into their
embedded managed script blocks. See http://msdn.microsoft.com/getthebetas/

The graphical XSLT Debugger in Exchanger XML Editor
(www.exchangerxml.com) is based (with permission) on the XSLT-Process
project that you mention. I have included the recent product
announcement for Exchanger XML Editor below with more information - it
is a Java-based offering and supports Xalan and Saxon, including XSLT
2.0 debugging. It also has a new Grid editor that is very convenient
for tag-free editing of XML.

Regards,
Gabriel McGoldrick
www.exchangerxml.com
Cladonia Limited is pleased to announce the immediate availability of
Version 3.1 of the Exchanger XML Editor.

Among the major enhancements in V3.1 are:
- Grid based editing;
- XSLT 2.0 Debugging using Saxon 8.4;
- Simplified XSLT transformations;
- Sample Instance generation from XML Schema;
- Improved User Interface with new icons;
- JGoodies look and feel.

---------------------------------------------------------------
New in Exchanger XML Editor V3.1
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
The primary focus of this release is a Grid view which provides
a convenient means for viewing and editing XML while shielding
the user from the complexities of the actual mark-up. While the
Grid is particularly useful for handling structured data, such
as purchase orders or medical records, it also supports documents
that contain mixed content. With its spreadsheet like interface,
the Grid view allows users to easily manipulate data in a
tag-free but XML-Aware environment.

View the video demonstration of the Grid at
http://www.exchangerxml.com/editor/videos/grid.html
The Exchanger XSLT Debugger now handles XSLT 2.0 Debugging
using Saxon 8.4. (The Saxon XSLT and XQuery Processor from
Saxonica Limited, www.saxonica.com ). The Exchanger XSLT
Debugger can be run in standalone mode as well as integrated
with the Editor, thereby facilitating the debugging of much
larger input documents which do not have to be opened in
the Editor. Other advantages of the Exchanger XSLT Debugger
include the ability to step instruction-by-instruction rather
than line-by-line and the ability to handle multiple output
documents. The Exchanger XSLT Debugger
is based on XSLT-Process (http://xslt-process.sourceforge.net/)
with permission from the copyright holders, Ovidiu Predescu and Tony
Addyman.

XSLT Transformations have been simplified through the use
of redesigned Input dialogs for both the XML Input and XSL
Input. Users may now choose between the current open document,
choosing a different document or choosing a document from a URL.

Sample Instance Generation from XML Schema allows the user to
simply and easily generate an example document that conforms
to an XML Schema. Required elements and required attributes
will always be generated but the user also have the option
to generate optional elements, optional attributes and to
generate content.

The User Interface has been improved with the use of new
and updated icons on the toolbar and throughout the Editor.
This has helped to increase the
visual appeal of such items as the Schema Viewer and Outliner.

JGoodies Look and Feel have been included with this release
of the Exchanger XML Editor giving the user more choice when
assigning a look and feel.

In addition we now offer video demonstrations of the major
features of the Exchanger XML Editor and Exchanger XSLT
Debugger and a comprehensive documentation library. These
can be viewed at http://www.exchangerxml.com/editor/library.html
Exchanger XML Editor V3.1 is available for immediate download from
http://www.exchangerxml.com/editor/downloads.html

Users who registered for a previous version can re-register
to try out this new release:
