hoi Christian,

ik antwoord je even rechtstreeks, want ik vloek niet graag in de kerk (de xsl-gemeenschap). Mijn eerste reactie is de vraag waarom iemand een xml tool zou willen gebruiken voor niet-xml-input. Waarom niet een simpel perl- of ruby-scriptje maken (of een andere taal naar keuze)?. Levert een fractie op van de code die je anders nodig hebt. Bovendien gebruik je het juiste hulpmiddel voor de juiste taak.

Heb je een reden dat je dat perse via xslt wilt?

groeten, Ruud

Sorry list,

I meant to send this message off list to Christian, that's why it is not in English.
Anyway, I suggested him to consider to use a tool like perl or ruby. Why use an xml tool for non xml input?

regards, Ruud
