Options -it and -im expect slightly different arguments for Saxon Java and Saxon-JS 2

Added by Martin Honnen 6 months ago

I have tried to run XSLT 3 starting with an initial template and/or an initial mode through Saxon Java and Saxon-JS 2 and to my surprise found that Saxon Java expects an argument in the form {url}name while Saxon-JS 2 expects Q{url}name. It was kind of a confusing and frustrating experience, perhaps in the future they can be aligned, although I am not sure whether to want to have both of them accept the same format or to "enhance" them both to accept both the two formats to not break backwards compatibility with each existing behaviour.
