Can XSLT be bi-directional ? Can you get the original XML information
from the output file by using the original XSLT file.

An example would be a XML file is transformed using XSLT into XHTML. A
User edits the data in the XHTML file (assuming no tags are harmed or
replaced) and sends it back. Is it possible to convert the information
in the XHTML file to it's original XML format using the original XSLT
file only.

Any thoughts ? Or is the only way creating a new XSLT file to do this
? Or is it possible for the transformation to be bi-directional. This
would greatly assist in building User friendly editing systems.
