Hi Mark,

If you have a client, then you must have a server somewhere.

It is possible through XForms and various XML pipeline
implementations to accomplish what you want entirely in XML,
but not (that I am aware of) only XSLT.

XForms, etc., may not be practical for the overhead, and likely the
LAMP or similar web stack will suffice and are ubiquitous.

And in any case they all use some scripting on the client side.

I have a stylesheet that generates XHMTL like:

Right now, clicking on the 635.jpg images opens the 635.htm page.

The difficulty is that in the final project, the aip/n.htm files would
number more than 3000 if each were constructed individually. Those pages
are quite simple and contain only an image and a few lines of text. What
I am looking for is a way to launch an XSLT style sheet that would build
the page within the browser on demand.

My idea is that clicking on the small/635.jpg image on my XHTML page
would launch a stylesheet to build the 636.htm page. I need some hints
on how to get started, where to look, or to know that this is not a good
