I wrote the application with the javax.xml.transform. Is there a similar function as saxon:parse() which I can use with my excising code or and easy way to sue it without having to rewrite and retest the whole application? An other small side problem is that the transformation crashes with a variable in the apply-templates (??). I tried as I hoped that that would do the job, but it crashes. ___ <xsl:template match="Content"> <xsl:if test=". != ''"> <fo:block space-after="10mm"> <xsl:variable name="htmlContent" select="."/> <!-- <xsl:call-template name="replace"> <xsl:with-param name="string" select="$htmlContent"/> </xsl:call-template> --> <xsl:value-of select="$htmlContent"/> </fo:block> </xsl:if> </xsl:template> <xsl:template name="replace"> <xsl:param name="string"/> <xsl:value-of disable-output-escaping="yes" select="$string"/> </xsl:template> ____ Thanks Luuk
