Default extension file type .xml for xsl files

Hi,

I just inherited a project after somebody leaving the company I work for. Part of the project are a number of stylesheets to format raw XML for rendering them in a browser. This all seems to work pretty well, but I'm confused about the fact that 2 (identical ) copies of every stylesheet are present:
<stylesheet>.xsl
<stylesheet>.xsl.xml

I'm very new to XSL, and tried searching the web in various ways, but to no avail (the search phrases I can come up with don't work very well in search engines).

Does anyone know of any reason to do this? Or is this some left-over from an old issue that has long been solved? Or should I just simply delete the "xsl.xml" files?

Thanks beforehand for any assistance,

Juul

Try deleting them and see if anything breaks.

Are the last-modified dates the same?

I've known software that decides to change or add to the file extension when you do a "save". Evil habit.

Thanks for the quick reply, but the last-modified dates are truly the same... As a matter of fact, I strongly believe that my ex-colleague just edited one of the 2 files, deleted the other one, and next copied the changed file to the other name.
