   RE: [xml-dev] Documenting XSLT (Was: Note from the Troll)

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Probably so, Adam, but as I recall, the XML parser isn't 
required to per se, so as a general solution, it may not 
be reliable.  Also, the self-documenting solutions I've 
liked also included the HTML namespace in the documentation 
element so one gets a nicer layout defined right up front.

Six of one, half dozen of the other.

All considered, for non-documentation element systems, Ken's 
solution is the best, IMHO.

Every XSLT processor I've met passes on comments, and makes them
available through the comment() function.

The solution you see above is an XSLT based one.
