saxon webservice extension
Several weeks ago I discovered (with help from folks here) that the
document() function could be used to access dynamically generated XML
data (such as from a Web service) as well as static XML data.  Most

Thus, the document() function may be used for inputting Web service
data.  Now, I would like to consider using XSLT to output to a Web
service.  SAXON and XALAN both have an extension element for outputting
to other files.  Suppose that I have a Web service which consumes XML. 
That is, you send an XML document as the payload of an HTTP POST.  Can
the SAXON:output element be used to send XML data to the Web service? 
In other words, does the SAXON:output element do an HTTP POST?  If so,
we can use XSLT as a bridge between Web services:

    -----------------                          ----------------
    |               |                          |               |
    | Web Service 1 |                          | Web Service 2 |
    |               |                          |               |
    -----------------                          -----------------
           |                                           ^
           |                                           |
           |                ----------------           |
           |                |              |           |
           ---------------->|    XSLT      |------------
                            |              |

Now that would be ultra cool!  /Roger
