RE: XSL to handle display mutliple pages

If you've been following other threads you'll have seen the advice that if you're getting the data from the database it's best to generate one XML document for each displayed page of data. However, at the level of 1000 records, handling a single document is quite feasible and despite what others have said, if you're doing the processing in the client I think it's quite a reasonable option, because it reduces the number of hits on the server. You'll find an example using this sort of architecture on page 608 of my book*: it's not doing paging in the way you describe, but a similar kind of interactive navigation within a dataset.
