RE: multiple stylesheet for an XML file
check out http://www.paultyng.com/xml i use ie5 to apply different style sheets to one xml file and display different results -----Original Message----- From: Richard Lander [mailto:rlander@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Friday, December 03, 1999 11:43 AM To: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: Re: multiple stylesheet for an XML file Hello, I've got an idea. Why not make your default stylesheet a really short one that displays a HTML forms pulldown-menu or scroll-box that displays the available stylesheets. I'm not sure off-hand if IE5-XSL can pick out processing instructions. If not, you can hard-code the stylesheets into the code. From there, you can choose the stylesheet you want among many, and then use the DOM to load and execute that chosen stylesheet. Assuming that IE5-XSL will allow the first part, I don't think it would be very hard to do. Another way of doing it would be to include that code in your regular default stylesheet, and display the above idea if multiple stylesheets exist, and display your document regularly if the regular default stylesheet was the only one. Sounds good to me. On that note, I've got a question. I know that it is easy to dynamically load an XSL stylsheet, but is there a way to do the same with CSS stylesheets? So, could CSS stylesheets be among the listing, as described above? Sounds good, Richard. On Fri, 3 Dec 1999, Larry Mason wrote: > > > I am using a servlet to process XML via XSLT.
