Alright, I've looked through the archives, and can't find anything that seems directly applicable, so I thought I might try asking:
I have a pile of records in one xml file-- (simplified example below): <books> <book> <title>book on animals</title> <subject>dogs</subject> <subject>cats</subject> <subject>snakes</subject> <subject>fish</subject> </book> <book> <title>book just on dogs</title> <subject>dogs</subject> </book> <book> <title>book just on cats</title> <subject>cats</subject> </book> </books>
-- I want to use <xsl:document> to output multiple documents with a single xsl-- these documents will be pages that list together books that include a given subject (and are named _subject_.html-- eg. dogs.html, cats.html, snakes.html, etc.)
In perl, I'd probably put the list of subjects for which I want to create pages into an array, and then cycle through the values in the array from start to finish, outputting a new document for each value-- can I use <xsl:param> like this? is there another array-like construct? or another simple solution I'm missing? or am I stuck replicating the xsl file for each different value?
Thanks for any help on this. -James
