This is another good reason to avoid having IE do the XSL Transformation.

Please describe the system that generates and displays your data.

For example:

1) Data in database.
2) SQL query returns data as XML
3) XSLT Processor applies a stylesheet to XML to produce HTML
4) HTML is served to browser

I expect your setup doesn't divide the concerns so neatly, and this failure to separate concerns, while it seems like a slick and time-saving answer, results in a constricted, inflexible architecture.

Someone may have a work-around to your problem, but it will only delay the time when you have to address the real issue.

Subject:  [xsl] Use same xml file with different XSL stylesheets

Hello all,

I have two different xsl stylesheets that will be applied to the same set of 
xml documents.

Is there a way to create references to the BASE xml files to save space?

Let's say my xml file is 100 lines, if I want to apply the two XSL 
stylesheets, I need to create two files base_01.xml and base_02.xml with 101 
lines in each.

The extra line adds the reference to the XSL stylesheet to be used.

I would like to know if it is possible to create the files with just a few 
lines, something like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="stylesheet1.xsl" ?>

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="stylesheet2.xsl" ?>

Thank you.
