FO invisible data
Greetings xsl-list I am trying to extract some data from a proprietary medical data system. The system basically generates a FO file that from the system goes on to be printed/faxed/emailed to many sources. I can grad the FO file on its way past copy it and do some other processing that I need to do to it. I have access to the XSL file that did generate the FO file and I can modify it as long as the FO file appears the same when printed/faxed/emailed. However the problem I have is that there is one key piece of data missing form the FO file that I need. I can insert it into the XSL file quite easily but when I do it appears on the final output and I can't have that. So my question is: Is there some way to include something like below but for it to have a property perhaps that makes the formatter ignore it completely but will still allow me to get to the data in the FO file? Eg: Currently I have things like this <fo:table-cell> <fo:block xsl:use-attribute-sets="ItemHeading" font-weight="bold">MRN:</fo:block> </fo:table-cell> <fo:table-cell> <fo:block xsl:use-attribute-sets="ItemData"><xsl:value-of select="/Report/Body/zSpRptSepSumPatDemogSP/MRN"/> </fo:block> </fo:table-cell> But I want the same thing but to be not visible on the page. Is it possible to put in an invisible table or block?
