RE: XSL with scripting
JC wrote: Thanks for the helpful example. I think this is exactly the sort of thing that an extension mechanism ought to be able to deal with. Is all text in a document contracted or can there be some elements whose content is not contracted? Element dependent. 'Grade one' braille is not contracted. Are different contraction rules applied to different parts of the document? No, but any document may be contracted differently in different countries. Within a 'locale' contractions are constant. Is the contraction process just a matter of mapping each word to an contracted form, or is it more complicated than that? Far more complicated. Both rule based, context based and exception (table) driven. Context information may be needed, as well as the content of an element.
