XSL to create positional ASCII text layout
I would like to use XSL to create plain ASCII text reports using XML as a data source. The major requirement is to be able to place a field in a specific spot on the page, say "row 6, column 10". I created an XSL stylesheet that partially worked, however the whitespace in the XSL was semantic. This resulted in some very messy XSL. Can what I want to do be done with just transformations? Or should I be thinking about modelling my reports with XSL formatting instructions and building ( or does one exist?) a formatter to create these ASCII reports. We are using the MSXML parser/processor. XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
