Re: transformations: xml->html works, what about xml->xml

Most transformations that take xml as an input format and output some "object oriented" format may be modelled by an xml->xml transformation. Simply think of xml as a formal notation for nested objects. > I saw the example of one that generates html, but doesn't > that presuppose the 'html flow objects'? > Is there a way to specify 'xml flow objects'? xml flow object trees are formally modelled by a DTD (James Clark). http://www.jclark.com/jade/#backend-fot I use to think of flow object trees as a special xml->xml transformation. The main difference to general transformation is the fact, that the target schema (xml fot) has a predefined syntax and semantic on how to display each element. That is just the same situation as with HTML. So it is not suprising that XSL uses "HTML element types" intermixed with the more abstract DSSSL flow objects. ++im -- Ingo Macherius//Dolivostrasse 15//D-64293 Darmstadt//+49-6151-869-882 GMD-IPSI German National Research Center for Information Technology mailto:macherius@xxxxxx http://www.darmstadt.gmd.de/~inim/ Information!=Knowledge!=Wisdom!=Truth!=Beauty!=Love!=Music==BEST (Zappa) XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
