I don't think there's anything specific to RNC about this: it's the same
problem with any text format. There's no portable way to do this in
If I had to solve this problem without using any XSLT extension
functions, I would probably:
- write a trivial script in some convenient language to collect all the
examples and wrap them up into a single XML document like this
<!-- RNC with < and & properly escaped -->
- then run XSLT using document() on the XML file with the collected examples
If that doesn't work because there's no way to identify the set of
needed filenames, then I would add an initial step that runs an XSLT
transformation on the input document that outputs the list of filenames
as a text file, then use this text file as input to my script.
