embed asp in xsl

It's not really possible - though you can do 1 of 2 things:

1) rename your xsl as .asp so the asp dll does pre-processing
server-side to what is just an xsl stylesheet

2) use the msxml namespace and use xsl:eval 

e.g -

	<xsl:eval language="VBScript">myFunkyFunction()</xsl:eval>

See the following:

Embedding a complete active server page in an xslt is not practical,
is not reasonable to expect it to work, and defy's the logic behind
the rescursive behavior of XSLT. (i.e. - its much too difficult).
Make life easier:

Leave business logic in asp pages (pull back data from a dbms or
whatever) and have them create xml data and transform it via msxml
engine into html/xhtml whatever... using xsl stylesheets... xsl can
be very dynamic type documents by using PARAMS and even passing in
complete nodesets...

Just my thoughts as I have been hacking
around with ASP and XML/XSL recently alot,

Does anyone know if it's possible to embed an active server page inside an
xsl sheet.... Also, I have finally figured out my parameter problem, using
multiple xml docs in an xsl sheet, and embedding javascript in xsl... If
anyone wants some of the samples I created I'm willing to share, since so
many people try to help me....

Thanks again for all your help...this forum is great
