Hi Jim,

thanks for clarifying this. I am using XML::LibXSLT[1] and I am somewhat confused because the rest is looking good. Could it be a bug in libxslt? Which XSLT implementation are you using to transform the txml files?

Best regards

As I was stepping through them, I realized that the generated test 147 contains a transition with an empty condition [1], which ought to be true for the test to be passed. Empty strings evaluate to false with my ecmascript implementation, so the test fails.
