Re: Best way to include code samples
Larry, I worked on this problem last month and received replies from Evan, Chris Bayes and Dimitre. I was trying to insert a 'copy' of XSLT code as examples in an online, XML tutorial. That way, if the code was changed, the code samples would be automatically updated. Chris has a solution he is working on, but I was not able to get it working. As you saw, Evan's is a little overkill for the size project you have. However, we did exchange a couple of emails. His solution worked as far as inserting the code into the example boxes, but we found out that the document() function outputs a string, not nodes, therefore I wasn't able to format the output properly. Dimitre's solution was interesting, but not what was needed. The closest I came to getting it to work was pulling the code in with a document() function and then building a conversion template for each tag name in the example. It wasn't worth the effort for the project I was working on, so I ended up "cutting-and-pasting" the code in the example section. You can see how it looks by going to: www.storefront-solutions.com/ demos/xml-demo/courseware/toc.xml Choose one of the chapters other than 'Overview' or 'Basics', drill down and you will see output of code examples. This is a tutorial system built on the fly with XSLT. I tried to get code insertion working for the code samples, but I finally gave up because of time constraints. I still intend to get it working. Please let me know what you end up doing. Mark __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? Make international calls for as low as $.04/minute with Yahoo!
