RE: Including a document containing static HTML

If the file cannot be retrieved or parsed, it's an error: the XSLT processor may either report the error, or return an empty node-set. > > Second: Will the disable-output-escaping="yes" save me from > potentially non-perfectly-formed HTML (by XML standards)? No. If the document is well-formed XML, xsl:value-of extracts all the text content; the only effect of disable-output-escaping is that if the input contains "<" this will be output as "<" rather than as "<". > How have other people dealt with this type of problem? Write an extension function which returns the entire HTML content as a string. Then write <xsl:value-of select="my:HtmlDocument('filename')" disable-output-escaping="yes"/> Alternatively, generate HTML output that contains a server-side-include.
