Hi Dan,

Fantastic paper giving a truly thorough examination of the mapper, great education and reference information.

How would using Saxon compare to the other results in your performance tests?

Hey Jack, good to hear from you!
Thanks for the comments.

Yeah, I believe Saxon compares favorably with XslTransform, but is a bit slower than XslCompiledTransform.
Anton Lapounov documents a great comparison of various XSLT engines here: http://blogs.msdn.com/antosha/archive/2006/07/24/677560.aspx

Michael Kay weighs in on the comments with some information about the Saxon testing part.
However, given that, Saxon supports XSLT 2.0, whilst Microsoft do not, so I think there's a lot of mileage in using Saxon.

I did start working on a utility which could alter the bytecode in a compiled BizTalk mapping assembly such that it would use Saxon or XslCompiledTransform, but I seem to not have too much time at the mo to finish it!
