RE: XSL: Error Detection?
You can write a new stylesheet module which imports the current one, and contains a single template rule of the form: <xsl:template match="*"> <xsl:choose> <xsl:when test=".... node is in error subtree ..."> ..do something. </xsl:when> <xsl:otherwise> <xsl:apply-imports/> </xsl:otherwise> </xsl:choose> </xsl:template> The only caveat is that this assumes you are not using apply-templates with parameters.
