You've got all the software there; the other thing you might be interested in is the saxon-resources8.9 file which contains documentation and sample applications. You can download that from the same place.
There's a "getting started" guide for the software at
and a quick introduction to XQuery at
Good luck!

Ok. Thanks. I have Saxon embedded in NoteTab Pro that I use to write and test stylesheets.
I have a foggy memory from a class I took where Xquery was briefly discussed, where I thought I might be able to use Xquery to write a sort of algorithm that would score  strings contained in certain XML tags greater than others, the score later to be used to rank a result set. Very foggy.

Thank you,

That's correct - what other files were you expecting?

What's you're intended use for Saxon-SA - XSLT transforms, XQueries
and/or XML Schema ?
