I have a rather large XSL/XSL:FO report that I have to edit/add on a regular basis. It's about 30,000 lines and becoming difficult to manage. Being new, I'm lacking a good organization skill to it. I'd like to be able to create multiple parts and collapse it using Stylus Studio's editing features. However, working in dummy <collapse> statements around any fo/xsl results in declaration errors.

Does anyone have any best practices regarding how to manage complex reports? I have not used any of the project abilities at all, so I'm assuming this may be an area to look into?

Hi James,
usually big XSLT stylesheets are split in several modules, includes using xsl:include. Unless you are referring to an XML document written using XSL:FO... in this case you can divide your file in N well-formed fragments and use XInclude statements to merge them in the final document. Before running the FO-to-PDF step you will have to run an extra step to obtain the complete document by using an XInclude-enabled parser.

Hope this helps,
Alberto
