Hi list

Let us say I'm making a quiz for the net using thousands of images.
Users will have to guess what the image is. It could be a flag of some
country. I don't want the name of the img file to give the answer

I will have to change the img filenames of all the img files in the
filesystem using a general purpose programming language. But it would
be nice if I can use XSLT to transform a document containing all the
original image filenames to a new document with the new names.

That is I'm looking for a method that will come up with the same new
names for the XSLT part of the project and for the general purpose
programming language part of the project.

One approach could be to rename the files using base64Binary (Saxon
has an extension function for that), except that I don't know if the
new names will always work as filenames?

What other or better approaches do we have, something that will be
easy to implement in both the XSLT and in the general purpose
programming language part of the project?
