However that becomes a problem when the individual stylesheets in the pipeline are independentlyOne thing that we noticed when implementing stylesheet chaining/pipelining/ whatever in 4Suite (see, I can advertise, too) is the problem of what to do with external stylesheet parameters. Say you want to pass the output of stylesheet 1 to stylesheet 2, and stylesheet 2 needs some top-level parameters passed in. For now we just don't do anything; only the first stylesheet in the chain gets that privilege. So I'm curious... what does your system do in this regard? Or if you prefer not to divulge, what do people think a system
I've always advised people to add the information to the document that's being passed down the pipeline, so stylesheets after the first get all the information from their source document. This works, except in the case where stylesheets in the pipeline expect parameters and can't be changed.
