Re: Can you help with this?
Hi, XSL processors have methods that take a Reader as a stylesheet so you can first build it dynamically as a String in Java. It will however be tricky as meta-programming always is. If you succeed in going through this project, could you share it? I'm sure a lot of people in this list would be interested.
