Am I right? Is it what you are saying? > You've find the expression I was searching. In fact, I want to give the specification of the back end by translating the FOs with specs given into the XSL ss. I describe the process: Author ss Backend specific ss XML document ----------> FO document -------> Document The "Backend specific ss" would be able, through PIs, to translate FOs into the media selected. The selection of the output media would be selected by a second pass process with a specific XSL ss which correspond to this media. I hope i'm more clear here. -- "The only corporate defense against rationality is bureaucracy." -- anon XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
