Personally, I would instead use XML output mode and make elements that will be serialized in JSP's XML syntax, or maybe I'd emit processing instructions and run the serialized output through a regex filter to replace the PIs with the appropriate tags. - 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
