hi all, 
i want to exctract certain data from a xml-file, which contains programdetails of several tv channels (see a examle below), and put it into txt-files (for each tv channel one txt-file). the programm should read from the xml file the data starting from 6:00 am of the following day till 5:59 am of the day after that. 
i am new to xml, xsl/xslt. my question is now, if my problem can be solved with xslt only, or if i need another programminglanguage (which one?) for extracting data according the time? as there are 22 tv channels, i don´t want to write an xsl-file for each of these...is parameterpassing possible with xslt?  which tool you would suggest? 
thanks a lot in advance! any kind of help welcome! 
regards, milena schrevel
