XSP is basically a specialized language for embedding exits to XSLT code into
4Suite doesn't bother with the intermediary: you write your scripts completely
in XSLT. 4Suite provides a very comprehensive library of extension functions
and elements that follow all the XSLT rules. It also provides a variety of
ways for separating content from presentation, from basic xsl:import through
stylesheet chaining (a very recent feature). I think 4Suite's approach is
superior to the XSP approach for several reasons, but then again, I'm just a
tad biased ;-)
If you liked XSL, I think you'd want to at least have a look at 4Suite. See
