Our site is XML/XSL, however we are about to receive a thousand pages of old static html that we will never have the time to turn into XHTML. I would like to be able to spit it through the parser without parsing it so that I can wrap our site template around the static html as I do for our other content. Is this possible?
(1) converts - '&' to & - '<' to < - '>' to >
<oldhmtl> <p>Hello world</p> </oldhtml>
and it will be a well-formed element of text properly escaped with the sensitive markup characters protected
I have tried the following:
-- using the document() function but the parser just ignored the file as it was not XML.
<xsl:value-of select="document('test.xml')/oldhtml" disable-output-escaping="yes"/>
