RE:  Use same xml file with different XSL stylesheets
I am not using IE to do the XSL transformation.

Right now I am using XMLSpy to create the files.

The base xml file will be created from data in a Database, at the time the XML is created (base.xml) I would like to create base_01.xml and base_02.xml that include the stylesheets with the transformations.

I could easily create the three files containing all the data and they will work, but I would like to know if there is a way to reference base.xml from both base_01.xml and base_02.xml to save space.

This is just for space saving shake, it is not required for my plan to work.

This is another good reason to avoid having IE do the XSL Transformation.

Please describe the system that generates and displays your data.

For example:

1) Data in database.
2) SQL query returns data as XML
3) XSLT Processor applies a stylesheet to XML to produce HTML
4) HTML is served to browser

I expect your setup doesn't divide the concerns so neatly, and this failure to separate concerns, while it seems like a slick and time-saving answer, results in a constricted, inflexible architecture.

Someone may have a work-around to your problem, but it will only delay the time when you have to address the real issue.

Subject:   Use same xml file with different XSL stylesheets

Hello all,

I have two different xsl stylesheets that will be applied to the same set of
xml documents.

Is there a way to create references to the BASE xml files to save space?

Let's say my xml file is 100 lines, if I want to apply the two XSL
stylesheets, I need to create two files base_01.xml and base_02.xml with 101
lines in each.

The extra line adds the reference to the XSL stylesheet to be used.

I would like to know if it is possible to create the files with just a few
lines, something like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="stylesheet1.xsl" ?>

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="stylesheet2.xsl" ?>

Thank you.
