XSLT and XPath function reference now online!
New content: the reference of the XSLT 2.0 and XPath 2.0 functions is now online.
The XSLT and XPath function reference is an excerpt from the German specialist book "XSLT 2.0 und XPath 2.0" (Galileo Computing, 2008) by Frank Bongers and was translated for the data2type homepage into English.
A total of 130 functions - 19 of XSLT, 111 of XPath (with prefix fn:) - are explained in detail and assigned to a category. The origin (XSLT/XPath 1.0 or 2.0), the return value, the number and type of the arguments as well as the function call are described. Furtermore, the purpose of use of the respective function is presented and demonstrated by means of practical examples. Then, the signature in the form of a function definition and, where applicable, a comparison of the versions follows.
