[xquery-talk] FLWOR in XSLT 2.0?

It's the XPath subset of XQuery, which supports "for" expressions but not full FLWOR statements, to the sometime consternation of XSLT developers (e.g. having to switch to <xsl:for-each> and <xsl:variable> when all you really wanted was "let").

Funny, I always thought the FLWOR was an XQuery only thing...

<xsl:stylesheet version="2.0"
<xsl:output omit-xml-declaration="yes" indent="yes"/>
<xsl:strip-space elements="*"/>

<xsl:template match="/">
  <xsl:sequence select=
  "(for $m in max(for $n in distinct-values(/*/b:book/(b:author |
                                           /b:name/concat(b:fname, '|',
                  $cnt in count(/*/b:book/(b:author | b:editor)
                                /b:name[$n eq concat(b:fname, '|',
b:lname) ])


(Looks quite horrible to me, like someone couldn't decide between XQuery
and XSLT.. :-/)
