I have more faith in human nature than you, surely no one would have anything that horrible:-) I think the (not totally unreasonable) aim is that you have a stylesheet being generated from some master template but you want user configuration to drop in xslt snippets to customise things. > Either way, using d-o-e to create xslt sounds fishy to me sure. any use of d-o-e is suspect. But I think here the fact that the target is xslt is a red herring, so a fish of a different colour. The issue is (I think) just how to get XML into the output if it started life in a quoted attribute in the source. the answers are one of 1) don't start from there 2) use d-o-e 3) write a mini parser (in xslt or an extension function) that interprets the string as markup and creates nodes as specified. 1 is best but may not be possible due to other constraints. 2 is simple if portability isn't an issue. 3 is an option if nothing else works.
