RE: using document() function in match attribute of xs
Ok I understand. Context! Thank you... Unfortunately this answer doesn't solve my real problem =) I'm trying to remove text content from my stylesheets, and load the text from a static xml document, called lang.xml. The xml source will output an element called "lang", which will have a value like "en" or "fr". I want my stylesheets to reference bits of text content abstractly, using the value of lang to determine how to find the actual text content within lang.xml. More broadly, my problem is this: How do I approach developing xsl stylesheets that are language-independent, where all text content is retreived from a static XML source? Are there established methods for accomplishing this? Are there any good tutorials or sites describing how to do it?
