Re: how to insert/include the text/data in a separate

xsl include text file
Can't you just store the .css in an XML file?

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<css>
    <style>foo</style>
    <style>bar</style>
</css>

and then add it to the <head> using <xsl:template
match="dacument('css.xml')/css/style">, or does it absolutely have to be a
standalone .css file that gets included? If so, you could also write a
simple XSL that would generate the .css file, so you'd only have to maintain
the data in css.xml.
