In these examples it seems implicit that you're assuming that your streaming XSLT processor uses an XML parser (or an SML parser that supports attributes and namespaces) - as the XSLT examples clearly use attributes. If you're using an SML processor, then you can use XSLT if it supports attributes and namespaces, if not then you'll need an revised XSLT standard that doesn't use match="" or xsl:template. So no attributes - no SML XSLT processor. You need S-XSLT. No namespaces - no SML XSLT processor. You need S-XSLT. If SML supports namespaces, and attributes, then you can use XSLT. Assuming that SML 'bit-of-data' (its not a document) has a document element (isn't that required for XSLT?). If SML still supports the notion of no document element, then again you need S-XSLT Don't these knock-on effects on other standards smack of re-inventing the wheel? Or am I missing something here, and I've now got egg all over my face? L. xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers. To post, mailto:xml-dev@i...
