The problem, of course, is that I will have to modify my xml, all 937+
files, one for each verb, when I add a new style sheet (while possibly
retaining the old ones - variations, in other words) and I was
thinking of creating stylesheets on-the-fly, in response to a query,
which were all based on the same, underlying database of
fully-conjugated verbs.

I was thinking perhaps I could do something like this:


By default, the browser would associate foo.xsl with foo.xml, but that
would not solve my problem either.

I need a separate file, or something, which maps the style sheets to
the documents.

Is there a canonical solution to this problem?

Aha! Maybe that would be another xml application, of some sort,
perhaps even HTML (yuck) a variation on the index.html theme - a
separate document which maps the stylesheets with the documents, one
which I could modify offline...
