.SH DESCRIPTION
The 
.B libexslt
library is used to provide extensions to
.SM XSLT
functions. These extensions come from the
.SM EXSLT
project <http://www.exslt.org/>
.LP
.SH USAGE
To make use of these functions in
.SM XSLT
the appropriate namespace must be defined on the
.B xsl:stylesheet
element.  To enable support for them in 
.BR libxslt (3)
you must call the appropriate functions (listed in the
.B SYNOPSIS
section) to register the extensions.  The
.I xslt-config
shell script can be used to obtain the necessary flags for
the pre-processor and linker.
The supported extensions are:
