XSLT engine

I just started working on XSLT on TeamSite application (Autonomy/HP product) platform. Its a Content Management System application

How do I check what kind of XSLT engine is used by TeamSite application ?

There are different XSLT engines. If I am using one XSLT engine and then I use another XSLT engine, do I need to make changes to the XSLT style sheet for this different engine ? DOes syntax remain same or differ for different engines ?

Which XSLT engine is open source ? I tried two, but none of them is working.

I would like something simple, where I can create XML and related XSLT file. Then I can select these two files from the UI to output HTML file. Just like when I have to compare 2 versions of a file.

If thats not possible, the I would like get clear cut instructions to setting up XSLT engine.

Thanks

It's not very clear what your exact question or problem is. Do you have a particular XSLT engine that you want to use, but are facing problems using it? If so, what problems - TellTheDetails.

If you're looking to select an XSLT engine, check out with Saxon and Xalan.

My question is

1) How do I check what kind of XSLT engine is used by application I am working on ?

2) If I am using Saxon XSLT engine and then I use Xalan XSLT engine, do I need to make changes to the XSLT style sheet for this different engine ? Does syntax remain same or differ for both Saxon and Xalan ?

3) As a beginner, which XSLT engine shall I start working on ?

Thanks

Both of them support the XSLT 1.0 standard. Saxon also supports XSLT 2.0.

It really makes no difference at all. As a beginner you should concentrate on learning core XSLT and avoid dealing with transformer-specific features. In other words you should use whichever transformer happens to be available.
