Hi Kelum,
To work on the xslt 2.0 stylesheets, you'll need decent xslt 2.0 skills.
I'd check out the resources for learning xslt at:


The code for the xslt 2.0 stylesheets is here:


Bob Stayton's book, http://www.sagehill.net/docbookxsl/index.html, is
about the xslt 1.0 stylesheets, much remains the same in terms of the
parameters and how they work, but the implementation of those features
may differ substantially in the 2.0 xslts.

I think Jirka or Norm would have to chime in on what features are
to-be-implemented. Another option would be to find a customization of
the 1.0 xslts that hasn't been ported to xslt 2.0 yet and handle that.
For example, webhelp. In that case, you'd depend on the xslt 2.0
stylesheets and build on them.
