Colin, thanks for the pointer. I assume you mean the technique that was discussed in relation to the document function (note: I am using XSLT 1.0 rather than 2). I tried this (in XML Spy for now), but got the error
'Error in function doument; Could not find external entity'
(see example XSLT below).
Is this perhaps related to to the use of data: not being supported or am I doing something else that is wrong ??
I will be using Xerces/Xalan in the 'real' environment (I know I should use this for testing also), does anyone know whether this technique will work with it/them ??
I haven't come across data: before. I thought that the document() function accepted a resolvable URI as a parameter, so does the use of data: provide a sort of resolver itself then ?
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
<xsl:output method="xml" version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" indent="yes"/>
<xsl:param name="inboundXML"> <xsl:text>default-value</xsl:text> </xsl:param>
<!-- try out the suggested technique for passing an XML string to the document function -->
<xsl:variable name="myVar" select="document(concat('data:,text/xml',$inboundXML))"/>
<!-- output the result --> <rootContainer> <xsl:value-of select="$inboundXML//Three"/> </rootContainer>
XML sent in as param 'inboundXML' :-
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <Numbers> <Odds> <One>1</One> <Three>3</Three> <Five>5</Five> </Odds> <Evens> <Two>2</Two> <Four>4</Four> <Six>6</Six> </Evens> </Numbers>

Michael>Yes. The way you pass the value depends of course on your processor API.
Michael, not sure what you mean, I'm using Xerces/Xalan if that helps ?
