No one told what you could do, though. Obviously you are relying on the user to know what the underlying platform is, in order to set $environment. Well, instead of setting $environment to 'WINDOWS', the user could just invoke a Windows-specific stylesheet that sets $path to what it needs to be for Windows, and then imports the generic stylesheet, which tries (but fails, due to lower import precedence) to set $path to the Unix one. If they're not on Windows, they can just invoke the generic stylesheet. It might be worth writing a wrapper that invokes Xalan via JAXP; the wrapper can choose the right stylesheet. If you need to do multiple transforms, you'll want the wrapper anyway, so you can recycle the compiled stylesheets and avoid JVM startup overhead. - Mike ____________________________________________________________________________ mike j. brown | xml/xslt: http://skew.org/xml/ denver/boulder, colorado, usa | resume: http://skew.org/~mike/resume/ XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
