Re: FW: XSL with scripting
Hi. I obviously can't speak for Keith :) But I can relay how I'm currently working with XML/XSL. Using IIS I am generating both the XML and XSL via ASP, allowing me to populate the XML with data from a DB (ObjectStore), and with the XSL largely static. The only reason why the XSL is being generated is to allow me to use global site-wide constants for things like colour, column sizes etc., set from an include file. The tranformation is done on the server-side delivering HTML to IE4/5. As you pointed out in a previous post, for quite some time, XSL is going to live largely on the server *not* the client. For this reason, I still maintain the W3C has to pay more attention to what is currently occuring in server-side Web development... but that's for another thread :) Cheers Guy. xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx on 12/20/98 06:20:36 PM To: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx cc: (bcc: Guy Murphy/UK/MAID) Subject: FW: XSL with scripting Hi Keith, After thinking more about you said, and tell me if I am wrong. The architecture you propose is: a) have on the server a script (or whatever) that create a XML document. Do you made some tests with liveScript to know if a XML document could be created with it? It seems that you can with ASP. b) attach to this document (with a tag or embed in it) a XSL script. c) let the client interpret the XSL script and convert the XML document into a displayable thing. Is it the kind of architecture you are proposing? I am not arguing, just trying to understand your architecture.
