True, and there may be another problem with the xsl-list archive: I'm 
looking for tasks that are related to querying in XML. Although there is 
not a very clear distinction between querying and transformation, I assume 
that the problems that are addressed with XSLT differ from the problems 
addressed with XQuery.

Thanks for the reply!
