The XSLT 1.0 specification does not provide a method for producing
multiple output files in a single transformation. Some XSLT processors
have provided extensions for doing this. Notably, MSXML 4.0 does not
provide such an extension.

If you are using XSLT processors which don't provide an extension for
multiple output documents, you should look at using a separate
invocation of the XSLT processor for each output document. You could use
one stylesheet for each output document, or have all of the
transformations in a single stylesheet and distinguish among them using

If you happen to be using MSXML's XSLT processor, my article "XSLT in
illustrates how to use that processor to perform multiple
transformations against a single source document, as well as how to
specify processing modes.

Hope that helps.

Thank you Zack for your quick reply. I think that you might have
misunderstood my question though and I realise that I've probably posted
question to the wrong list.

My problem is not how to generate several outputfiles from one XMLfile,
rather how to generate several XMLfiles from one inputfile.

If this is the wrong list, does anyone know of a corresponding list for
