A Use-Case Driven Approach to the Development of Reusable Stylesheet
Developing a library of XSLT stylesheets that can operate on documents
of different types is a challenging. While XSLT supports modularization,
it takes some experience to learn how to properly modularize XSLT.

Collaborative XSLT development poses many challenges: misunderstanding
of XSLT import precedence rules can lead a team to abandon logical modularization
approaches; XSLT code requirements are difficult to articulate without writing
the stylesheets themselves; and XSLT code can be overwhelming to review without good

This presentation will describe the experiences of a team of experienced and
junior engineers that created a collection of re-usable stylesheets. The
presentation will review the Stylesheet Unit Test Driver that the team
created and the development methodology that the team followed.
