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.
I have a stylesheet that generates XHMTL like: <a href="../aip/635.htm"> <img src="../cr/small/635.jpg" alt="stamp image"/> </a>
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 idea.
