Hi Steven,

Maybe this helps. I took it from MS MSXML 4.0 SDK help:

The following Microsoft® JScript® example fills an HTML DIV tag with the
result of transformNode.

  // Load data.
  var source = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.DOMDocument.4.0");
  source.async = false;

  // Load style sheet.
  var stylesheet = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.DOMDocument.4.0");
  stylesheet.async = false

  // Fill a div tag with the result of the transform
  divInfo.innerHTML = source.transformNode(stylesheet);

If you want to fill the complete windows, you cab change de last line of
the script into:

I have a single XML document that contains the data.  There are several
different views of this data that I need to display, and exactly what
goes into a view will be determined by some selections in an HTML form.
So my plan had been to incorporate a CGI script that would take the form
parameters, generate the appropriate XSL stylesheet, and format the XML
document using this stylesheet.

The only way I know to apply a different XSL stylesheet to the same XML
document is something like:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE page [
<!ENTITY data SYSTEM "data.xml">
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="style.xsl"?>
which (I believe) would mean I would have to save a file called
"style.xsl", and then have the CGI script return the above as xml data.

I'd rather not create a bunch of temporary files (for the "style.xsl"
files) if I can avoid it. Is there a better way to do this?
