Can anyone point me to the xsl api javadoc section that discusses this, and
or the w3c recommendation section.

Is their a direct association with xsl and request objects in the xsl api

If you can pass parameters to the stylesheet, then the following will work:

<xsl:param name="chapter" />

<xsl:template match="chapter">
  <xsl:if test="@no = $chapter">
    <xsl:copy-of select="." />

How you pass parameters to the stylesheet will depend on the XSLT processor
you're using and how you're using it.

Hope that helps,
