Javascript alternative to XSLT

A couple of interesting developments in the sphere of web development have come to light lately. One that caught my eye was the development of JSLT as an alternative to XSLT. The ajaxian blog has a lot more detail on the subject but as you can see below the syntax alone is quite different, just how performant it is in the real world is yet to be seen.

one clarification that should be made though is that JSLT is an alternative to XSLT not an implementation of XSLT in javascript. Rik Arends (the creator of JSLT) describes what it does:

JSLT parses/tokenizes all javascript-code and processes it for macros and language extensions recursively, maintaining proper nesting.
