Paul CorriveauSubject: reverse xslt transformation
Author: Paul Corriveau
Date: 31 Aug 2005 08:12 AM
Here's the scenario:

file1.xml gets translated to file2.xml using xlat.xsl. Is there a way to generate another xsl mapping file2.xml to file1.xml using the existing xslt?

BTW, I have a few sugestions regarding SS. Where should these be directed?

Hi Paul,
unfortunately there is no automated way of creating a "reverse" XSLT; any time an XSLT performs a computation or data manipulation, finding the inverse operation could be non deterministic (think about an instruction that concatenates Street, Zip, City and State into one Label; splitting the Label into the 4 original pieces requires some complicated logic)

As for the suggestions, you can post them in the "Stylus Studio Feature Requests" forum.
