 re: general problem
i'm no javascript expert, but i'm using a piece of
code like this to grab the current xml document for
manipulation in a javascript function.  

var xmlDoc = document.XMLDocument;
if (xmlDoc == null){
  xmlDoc = navigator.XMLDocument;

hope that helps.

Hi all,

Imagine I have a set of nodes like this:


I apply a stylesheet to the xml to output a table that
displays certain
elements of each <a> such as:

  <td>b , c, d</td>

Say I want to include a button next to that row that,
when clicked, opens a
window displaying -all- the elements for that <a>.

I can do this by calling a javascript function, passing
the position of the
<a> node as a parameter, and using the DOM to extract
the information I
want.  However, this currently relies on me hard-coding
the name of the xml
file (xmlObj.load('xmlfile')) into the function, which
then makes the
stylesheet useless for all but one xmlfile.

If you understand what Im asking ;) is there a better
way of doing this?

Thanks to anyone on my wavelength, apolgies to everyone
