I have a stylesheet that converts xml to wml but I'm not sure how to split the wml up into cards. The output needs to be displayed on a simulator and so I dont want the user to have to scroll through hundreds of lines of text on the one screen, it would be more usable to split it up into cards, perhaps displaying about 10 lines of text on each card.

Is it possible to do this using a stylesheet?

There is an example of a stylesheet breaking up an XML file into multiple WML cards on page 55 of the freely-downloadable preview excerpt of our XSLT book that we sell off our website.

From our home page follow the margin link to "Books & free excerpts" and download the free excerpt to the eleventh edition of "Practical Transformation Using XSLT and XPath".

Note that the PDF book is extensively hyperlinked, bookmarked and indexed (for example, all page numbers are "hot" and can be clicked). We also sell a PDF book on XSL-FO titled "Practical Formatting Using XSL-FO" now in its fifth edition. The purchase of any copy grants perpetual free updates to all future editions of the book. All US Government employees have prepaid access to both books through a worldwide purchase made last year.

I hope this helps.
