Re: From WordprocessingML inline styles to nested inli
This is really wicked, but I think you're on the right track.

I am dealing with a problem that is somehow related to the one that Jeff Sese described in the thread "Transforming a Loose Structure" today, but it is different, so I'm starting a new thread.
Since your style_nesting element holds a representation of the the hierarchy you want to create, it seems that's the sensible tree to traverse in creating your output.
I'm a bit puzzled by your statement that you don't want to "hardwire the structure of the tree to create", since that's exactly what the style_nesting element does (and fairly neatly too). So I'll work out a way of converting your input on the assumption that the style_nesting is available. This is a "meta-stylesheet" kind of application, but not in the sense that it's a stylesheet that generates a stylesheet, but rather only in the sense that its traversal logic is internally configurable rather than being done in the usual way, by traversing the input. (Simply put, you can't do that since there's no mapping of tree to tree.)
You need to parameterize your input to pass it through and work on as you go. Something like this:
<xsl:apply-templates select="$styles//style-nesting" mode="style">
<xsl:with-param name="r" select="."/>
<!-- initiates traversal of the style-nesting tree, carrying the content -->
<xsl:template match="style-nesting" mode="style"/> <!-- simply tunnels (use a better method if available) --> <xsl:param name="r"/> <xsl:apply-templates mode="style"> <xsl:with-param name="r" select="$r"/> </xsl:apply-templates> </xsl:template>
<xsl:template match="b | i | u" mode="style"> <!-- matches elements inside the style nesting tree --> <xsl:param name="r"/> <xsl:variable name="contents"> <!-- consolidates generation of the contents of this node since it's the same either way --> <xsl:apply-templates mode="style"> <!-- continue down the style nesting tree --> <xsl:with-param name="r" select="$r"/> </xsl:apply-templates> <xsl:if test="not(*)"> <!-- but if we're at the bottom, write our text --> <xsl:value-of select="$r/w:t"/> </xsl:if> <xsl:variable> <xsl:choose> <xsl:when test="$r/w:rPr/*[local-name()=local-name(current())]"> <!-- if parameterized input has our style, we are copied (note: you might want a more sophisticated way to map them) --> <xsl:copy> <xsl:copy-of select="$contents"/> </xsl:copy> </xsl:when> <xsl:otherwise> <!-- even if not, we want our content --> <xsl:copy-of select="$contents"/> </xsl:otherwise> </xsl:choose> </xsl:template>
