Can I use XSLT in streaming fashion ? > (I doubt it because of xpath patterns) XSLT only accepts a well-formed XML document and if I guess from your use of the word "streaming" that this is an unterminated stream of markup, hence, it isn't well formed and, therefore, isn't XML. The XPath data model of the complete XML instance must be available to the XSLT processor for random access to the tree, so is inappropriate for what I think you are asking for. XSL, XSLT and XPath questions would be better posted to the following list: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list There are a number of subscribers who would enthusiastically respond to such questions. There is also an *excellent* FAQ at: http://www.dpawson.co.uk I hope this helps. ....................... Ken -- G. Ken Holman mailto:gkholman@C...
