xsl read from url
Hi Mike,

I'd be very pleased to see some support for some kind of piped processing.

I would really to call web services from XSLT - and no, I don't mean the trivial ones that you can address with HTTP GET, I mean SOAP-style, with a proper XML query message.

Could the new xsl:document element be used for this - can it receive a return message? In which case, could it also be used to implement simple in-process piping?

transformation but I
could well have missed it. Is there?

The XSL WG is debating a recent proposal for something called <xsl:apply-transformation> which would apply a stylesheet to a source tree and return the document node of the result tree. There are various views on how it might work in detail, but there seems to be a reasonable level of enthusiasm that something along these lines should be provided. But as often happens, the devil will be in the detail.
