Interestingly enough, the first live.com hit for
the "XslCompiledTransform Performance" query at the moment is
of Jeff Prosise, where he says he was disappointed that XslCompiledTransform
ran just 3 times faster than XslTransform on a "fairly simple style sheet".
He is concerned that XslCompiledTransform is not fast enough comparing to
the good old MSXML 4.0. Well, as we will see very soon, XslCompiledTransform
may easily outperform MSXML 4.0 by several times!
