Indeed, the "XSL Taglib," which was once offered from Jakarta Taglibs, is
long out of date and should not be used.  However, not all sources point
to XTags.  The JSP Standard Tag Library (JSTL) is what most people will
probably recommend for a JSP 1.2 container.  XTags was the inspiration for
many of JSTL's XML-related tags, and is still current if you're using a
JSP 1.1 container.

The current discussion, concerning syntax of the <x:transform> tag,
is about JSTL, not XTags.
