Re: A few questions to the experts: functions, templat
OK, I have not been very clear. It's actually very simple:
1.) I do not have access to any xslt-processor on a server. However, I have it on by own computer, so I can generate (which I do) a lot of xml-database-driven standalone (x)html pages. That is what I do for site development. Later I upload the (ordinary) (x)html-pages to a server and I don't have a need for a xslt-processor anymore.
2.) There are however some things - also for example some other projects - for which method 1 doesn't work (e.g. because of database size etc.). That is what I was referring to when I wrote about the need of parameterizing it via browser ;-)
I hope this clears it up a little bit :-).
Oh - and if you feel this is off-topic, just ignore it silently please:
I also encountered another problem in the meantime: Is there any free (as in cheap) application available, preferrably platform independent, that creates images from the font? I have to deal with asian fonts, and few people (of the western world) have those installed, so I was thinking about an on-the-fly font->picture generation.
Naturally, if there is no other choice, I will write one myself, but I am pretty sure that someone must have encountered this problem before :-)
What would you feel be a good way to do it? I was considering using SVG, since this seems to be a neat new - and closer to xml/xsl - way to do it, but if I am not mistaken, svg support isn't implemented in major browsers yet and requires the download of e.g. the batik kit?
P.S.: Thanks again for all the help so far!
