Please excuse my ignorance, but I have very little experience and exposure to the intltool-update tool prior to today. Please correct me if I wrong, but the way I understand it, is that intltool-update is used to update and merge the translations files. It looks like it is extracting all the strings from the CS and Xml documents specified in the POTFILES.in file. 

I did a quick test by adding WelcomePage.xsl to POTFILES.in. The patch work if the strings are added to the po files (manually), but
unfortunately intltool-update is not picking up the strings from the
xsl and updating/merging them into an existing po file automatically. 

How does intltool know what strings to extract from cs and xml files? 

Is there a way that we can configure it to extract some strings from Xsl files? 

I can see this as being a very handy feature as it will enable us to translate all Xsl files in the future. I am also using Xsl in the Web Reference AddIn.
