Re: xslt and the filesystem
Is it possible for xsl/xpath, via the document() function, to read in all files in a particular directory... Off the filesystem, probably not, no (but see below). If you are pulling the files from an http sserver then yes, you just need to configure the server to send an xml representation of the directory list instead of an html index file. Off the file system you are really requesting a URI of the form file:///xml/articles/comments so in some settings (eg java I would guess, although I don't really do java) If you have an entity resolver set up that picks up file: URI protocol then again you can return anything you like, including an xml representation of the directory list.
