RE: One texdocument in and several xmldocuments out?
The XSLT 1.0 specification does not provide a method for producing multiple output files in a single transformation. Some XSLT processors have provided extensions for doing this. Notably, MSXML 4.0 does not provide such an extension. If you are using XSLT processors which don't provide an extension for multiple output documents, you should look at using a separate invocation of the XSLT processor for each output document. You could use one stylesheet for each output document, or have all of the transformations in a single stylesheet and distinguish among them using modes. If you happen to be using MSXML's XSLT processor, my article "XSLT in MSXML" at http://www.perfectxml.com/articles/xml/XSLTInMSXML.asp illustrates how to use that processor to perform multiple transformations against a single source document, as well as how to specify processing modes. Hope that helps.

Thank you Zack for your quick reply. I think that you might have misunderstood my question though and I realise that I've probably posted my question to the wrong list. My problem is not how to generate several outputfiles from one XMLfile, but rather how to generate several XMLfiles from one inputfile. If this is the wrong list, does anyone know of a corresponding list for XML? Tove >Absolutely.
