   RE: [xml-dev] Building Complex XML

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

This is an interesting one. Turning your criteria into XPath expressions
and storing them in an XML file is the right thing to do and isn't
difficult. Processing these using XSLT is a little tricky, though,
because it doesn't currently handle XPath expressions read from a source
file. What you could do is to process the criteria file by transforming
it into an XSLT stylesheet and then executing that stylesheet.
