Xml – Are .NET 3.5 XPath classes and methods XSLT 2.0 compatible


I'd like to use regular expressions in selecting elements using the match function. I'd prefer not to use an external library (such as saxon) to do this.

Best Solution

I believe the answer in this discussion is misleading. I think .NET 3.5 doesn't support most XSL/T 2.0 functions (if any at all).

An example:

A call to a 2.0 function gives the following error message under .NET 3.5:

'current-dateTime()' is an unknown XSLT function.
