I've been playing around with xsltproc and while I realize it is just a proofing tool not meant for serious transforms, I'm wondering just how far it can go. Are there any references or tutorials anywhere for how I might add extensions to the XSL understood by xsltproc? The website only discusses extensions via C as applied to the libxsl C functions; it's not clear if there is any mechanism for xsltproc to dynamically extend itself. Then again, maybe I don't need to extend it. The two transforms I would like to implement seem easy and commonplace, but are proving elusive: I would like to render a node-set into rows of columns without resorting to disable-output-escaping to insert the modulo-column </tr><tr> break, and I'd also like to be able to present a node-set in a new random order on each call. If either of these effects can be done directly with xsltproc, I'll be one happy camper. -- Gary Lawrence Murphy <garym@xxxxxxxxxxx> TeleDynamics Communications Inc Business Innovations Through Open Source Systems: http://www.teledyn.com "Computers are useless.
