Well, the fact that XSLT is slow is one really annoying thing about
it. Another thing is that the syntax (XML!) is so cumbersome. As
others have pointed out the logic of a stylesheet for a nontrivial
transformation can be tricky, and the fact that XSLT syntax is so
messy makes an already difficult task harder than it should be.
