a very nice use case for such a function or one more hint that xlink
should be supported some more in common browsers. This is a typical
example for a object oriented subject in the XML world.

Best regards,

|This looks like a good use case for an extension function
|stylesheet) which can be invoked from XSLT and returns the result of
|transforming a document using a given stylesheet.
|Such a function has been suggested from time but I've never seen a
|convincing use case for it before.
