The idea is that we have a node in the input XML to choose what style of
display to use, and then include this, but the xsl:include generates:
org.apache.xml.utils.URI$MalformedURIException: Path contains invalid
character: {

The code looks like:
<xsl:variable name="skin-Config">
../skin<xsl:value-of select="/report/header/skinInfo/skinFolderName"/>.xsl

<xsl:include href="{$skin-Config}"/>

In the XSLT processing model the *entire* stylesheet has to be processed before the processor even looks at the source node file.

There is no way to influence the xsl:include and xsl:import statements by the source tree.

You could do a two-step process where in one stylesheet based on the source file you configure a new stylesheet fragment that you need and *then* run that new synthesized stylesheet fragment on the source file to get your result.

I hope this helps.
