Re: Preserve HTML formatting when apply-templates in
append="true"> is the source of your problems it's not a very functional (in the sense of functional programming) way of doing things (functional programming historically has a problem with IO as leaving or reading messages has the whiff of state change about it:-) However for writing log files you probably need something like this. rather than do <xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes"></root></xsl:text> It might (or might not) be slightly cleaner to _not_ have a wrapper element, and just have your log as an external parsed entity, this is often more convenient, lots of processes find it more efficient just to append to a list of elements than to keep the file a well formed docuent. if log.xml is your log then you can have a well formed document version of it by having the (fixed) file of the form <!DOCTYPE wrapper [ <!ENTITY log SYSTEM "log.xml"> ]]> <wrapper> &log; </wrapper> > or should I just figure it ain't broke so don't fix it? that, probably:-) David ________________________________________________________________________ This e-mail has been scanned for all viruses by Star Internet.
