Re: [xml-dev] xsl processing problem with multiple templates

XSLT and XPath questions would be better posted to the following list:


There are a number of subscribers who would enthusiastically respond 
to such questions.

There is also an *excellent* XSLT FAQ at:

It doesn't look like that to me ... it looks like you need the 
document() function.

How about something like:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="allfixes.xsl"?>
         <fix href="fix1.xml"/>
         <fix href="fix2.xml"/>

Then in allfixes.xsl have one instruction that pushes all fix elements:

   <xsl:apply-templates select="fix[not(@href)] |
                                document( fix/@href )/fix"/>

... and then handle each fix element that arrives either from the 
local file or the referred file.

>Is there anyway of getting them both to work in harmony?

The above is one push instruction for all fixes, embedded or referred.

I hope this helps.
