With all of the things you are doing with XML, perhaps you can help me.
Below is a message I posted to the XML-DEV list.  I can't seem to find a way
around this.  Hopefully you can see it.  Thanks!!

I'm wondering if there is a way to use the .load() method on an asp file's
output, as opposed to loading an actual .xml file.  I have an xml file,
note.xml.  All it contains, is as follows.

<?xml version="1.0"?>

I also have a note.asp file that contains the following:

<%@ Language="JScript" %>
  var strXML;
  strXML='<?xml version="1.0"?><note><body>Testing</body></note>';

When I load the .asp in the web browser, I get an XML document back.
(Obviously, as it's the same data in the .xml)  However, in another .asp
file, notetest.asp, I want to load the output of the note.asp.

  var xmlDoc = Server.CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM");

Is there a way to use the load method on a file, that is not XML, yet the
output of that file, after processing, IS XML??  Thanks!

Rather than looking at it as an alternative to jsp (or php, or asp, or any
other server side process), xslt should be seen as separate and
complementary.  The idea of xslt on the web is to separate the display from
the data and processing.  I am working on several pages that use asp to
combine, parse, rearrange, and populate xml, and then use xslt to transform
the resulting xml into something displayed on the browser.  We can have one
developer working on the data end, and another working on the presentation,
and as long as the resulting xml from the developer is consistant, the
programmer doing the xslt pages can format it however he wants.

I am interested in finding out about the future of XSL. Do you expect it to
for a while? Is there a debugger for it? What are it's advantages as
compared to
Server pages? Our company has just started using it, but would like to make
informed decision whether to continue using it or to use Java server pages.
