RE: how to change xsl dynamically?
Another way might be to create 2 (small) additional xml files.. myinfo1.xml - ( uses filter1.xsl and has an external entity ref for myinfo.xml) myinfo2.xml - ( uses filter2.xsl and has an external entity ref for myinfo.xml) (myinfo.xml would NOT have an associated stylesheet ) The client would then point the browser toward myinfo1.xml or myinfo2.xml, but NOT myinfo.xml Also, you may want to check out the Cocoon project. Cocoon is a prebuilt Java servlet that matches (based on client agent?) a stylesheet with an xml document. http://java.apache.org/cocoon/index.html I think the way Cocoon works is an individual xml document has multiple stylesheet headers, and depending on the client agent ( netscape/ie ), the Cocoon servlet will process a particular xsl file with the xml document. > -----Original Message----- > From: owner-xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx > [mailto:owner-xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx]On Behalf Of > Marco.Mistroni@xxxxxxxxx > Sent: Friday, September 10, 1999 10:28 AM > To: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx > Subject: RE: how to change xsl dynamically? > > > Hi, > sorry for not understanding, but if you want to choose which xsl > file to use to process your xml file i think(it is my opinion) > that you have > 2 solutions: > - modify the xml file manually > - call an xsl processor and set the xsl file as parameter > best regards > marco > > > -----Original Message----- > > From: EXT Sam.Walker [mailto:Sam.Walker@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx] > > Sent: 10.
