RE:  conditional multiple outputs
You might be interested that this problem is one of the use cases the XSL WG
is studying in its work on streaming: how to generate multiple output files
from a single input file processed in a single pass. We refer to it as the
"coloured widget" problem based on the way it was originally expressed by
Oliver Becker. (Who, like three-and-a-half of the contributors so far to
this thread, happens to be German. Odd coincidence.)
