IronXSLT: Visual Studio plugin
Oleg Tkachenko has created a visual studio's plugin for XSLT. You can read all about it and get to his download from his blog: Note: it only works with Visual Studio Code Name "Orcas" Beta 1, and you MUST have the SDK installed. I've downloaded all of the above and am excited about future builds of this plugin. Currently it has the ability to complie XSLT into DLLs.

XSLT Grouping & Muenchian Method Question
The hardest thing you can do in XSLT is to do a multi-level grouping. I had come up with a way using the Muenchian Method and "not (preceeding::...)" to manage multi-level grouping. It did the trick, but was very inefficent. A sharp, young developer on my team pointed me to a post by Jeni Tennison at that describes a great way to efficiently handle multiple level grouping in an xml file. The basis is to concatenate the three parts ......
