Huh? The closest you'll find is the ability to output CSS instructions which could do what you're asking. Move your search from XML to CSS, find out how to do it there (in plain HTML and CSS only), and then come back and cut 'n' paste what you wrote into an XSL StyleSheet.

I noticed that you kept asking but didn't start looking. I did a search on Yahoo! and found this in less than 5 minutes. <>. It probably won't be portable outside of IE (I'm using 6.0) but it does what you want.


var i = 0;
function rot()
i = ++i % 4;
if (! = 'progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.BasicImage(rotation=' + i + ')';
document.all.aDiv.filters.item('DXImageTransform.Microsoft.BasicImage').Rotation = i;
} // ends function rot(void)

<input type="button" value="Rotate by 90 deg" onclick="rot();" />
<div id="aDiv" style="width: 100px; height: 100px; background-color: lime;">
<table width="100%" height="100%">
<td align="center" valign="middle">Kibology for all.</td>
