Subject: Re: [xsl] ASP script: produce HTML SELECT box?|

In an ASP script, I've queried the database and have received back a result set and converted that into an XML document. What I want to do is create an HTML "SELECT" box from that XML document.
I know I can create an XSL style sheet to render the XML document as a SELECT box, but is that the only way to create the HTML SELECT box, when my source for the SELECT is an XML document already? I was just asked this question, and it seems like there's probably a simple answer, but I can't think of one. Is there a way to do the XSL style sheet *in* the ASP script, and somehow render the XML document using it, rather than having to create a separate XSL style sheet and then calling a render function passing it the XML document and the name of the style sheet?
Not sure if my question is clear, but does anyone know what I'm trying to ask? Is it doable? Or do I just have to create a separate XSL style sheet to render that XML doc as an HTML SELECT box?
