Michael Kay, XSL Transformations (XSLT) Version 2.0, World Wide Web Consortium, Proposed Edited Recommendation PER-xslt20-20090421, April 2009.

This specification defines the syntax and semantics of XSLT 2.0, a language for transforming XML documents into other XML documents. XSLT 2.0 is a revised version of the XSLT 1.0 Recommendation published on 16 November 1999. The changes made in this document are designed to meet the requirements for XSLT 2.0 described in XSLT 2.0 Requirements. The way in which each requirement has been addressed is outlined in I Checklist of Requirements. A summary of the changes since XSLT 1.0 is included in Changes from XSLT 1.0. XSLT 2.0 is designed to be used in conjunction with XPath 2.0. XSLT shares the same data model as XPath 2.0, which is defined in the XPath 2.0 Data Model, and it uses the library of functions and operators defined in XPath 2.0 Functions and Operators. XSLT 2.0 also includes optional facilities to serialize the results of a transformation, by means of an interface to the serialization component described in XSLT and XQuery Serialization.
