I’m not sure if this is actually of any use to anyone but if you do want to use Microsoft's Extended XPath Functions from a BizTalk Map (see my previous post) then I've created a wrapper assembly to do this for you.
Method names are the same as the original functions, but using "_" instead of "-".

Using Microsoft's Extended XPath functions in BizTalk#
It's not that well documented, but Microsoft have a bunch of extra functions you can use from XPath expressions within XSLT.
You can find the documentation on them here.

What isn't made apparent is that none of them work with XslTransform: a subset of them will work with XslCompiledTransform, and the others only work with MSXML 4.0 onwards.

This becomes obvious if you try and use these functions, or if you read this blog post from the Microsoft XML team on the XslCompiledTransform class.

Being the curious cat I am, I wondered if there was any way to use the functions from within XslTransform - if there was, I figured you could use the functions in a BizTalk Map...
