I've been on this list a while and reading a lot, but haven't said anything yet. So, hello, I'm Devon. Anyway, on to my question...

I have some old PHP files which are perfect XML, and would like to generate files from them without putting them on a server.

So I'm wondering if there's any XSLT processors/engines that will treat any PHP code in the XML file as a PI, and use PHP to execute it. I'm thinking that since PHP can be included in a file just like any PI "<?php foo(); ?>", and PHP can be executed on the command line, it should be possible to do this. I don't thinking piping would work for this, would it (I'm using Windows)? Even if it did, I'd like to do the transforming & php execution in a more simplified way.
