RE: Relation between XSL and DOM

Kindly excuse me if the doubt happens to very basic :-) The XSL spec. provides a pattern rule which specifies a pattern and a template:- PATTERN :- This will help specify a pattern/sequence of XML elements from the source XML file. QUESTION * In this scenario of patterns , where exactly does DOM fit in? * Are DOM interfaces being used by XSL patterns to select specific XML elements from the source XSL file? The XSL processor makes a tree of the source XML file before processing it. So I feel that when selecting patterns to match with templates , the processor uses DOM interfaces (or may be converting the match = "" syntax into DOM interfaces ) to selectively extract XML elements from the XML source tree before it applies templates to them. Am I right? Thanks in advance for any answers, AMIT XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
