Greets all, this is probably a newb question, but I'm stumped:
I have 2 combo boxes on a page pulling data from xml.
When a user selects a choice from one or both of the boxes and clicks
the a button (in my example below they can choose from a category
and/or description,) the results should be displayed under the boxes..
here is what I have so far:

to answer the question you first need to clarify what you mean by "retrieve
the data". Depending on the framework in which the HTML page will be
executed, you could need some DHTML programming, or a server-side solution
like CGI, PHP or ASP.

After doing some homework, I realized that it's probably not feasible
to handle my problem through XSLT alone.. my first thought was that I
could use XSLT code to capture data from one listbox, compare
the data to the other listbox, then display data from the XML file based
on the 2 selected options. I have a java programmer at hand, so I'll take
the java route I suppose.. I posted here to see if it had been done
before with XSLT alone. Thanks for your reply!
