using different xsl
Thanks for the reply.

There is one thing that I am worrying a lot. If the number of my customer
growing
I have to mess with same XSL again and again to meet new element. It will
end up
with very complicated xsl that hard to maintain.

Shall I worry about this?

-John

You could have a single generic stylesheet with lots of sub templates.  You
could then perform the transformation and the XSL will match to the elements
available in the incoming XML e.g.

1) <xsl:template match="/root">
   ....

2) <xsl:template match="/data">
   ....

1 would match a root element called "root" and 2 would match a root element
called "data".  Each one could treat the XML differently.

The precise solution depends on the XML you're receiving.  If they share the
same name for elements you may need to increase the complexity of the
'select's and 'match'es.
