Hi there,

I have done a lot of XSLT files for our project and now there is a huge
need to document them before the end of project. So some tools would be
needed. I dont know what would be the best approach to document XSLT files
(which 99% is for building web interface, and a few XSL-FO conversions)?
What came to my mind is something like UML diagrams... Am I thinking
complitely wrong approach?

If it would be possible: my "main" XSLT files normally include
(xsl:include) a lot of other XSLT files, because I use them in various
places. These files take values from sourcetree and form separate XML-
files. Now is there a way to visually build a image about where the
variables get the values? This can obviously be done manually, but in this
case it would be way too much work - why not let the computer do the task.

I have been "gooleing" and browsing the web for the tools to do the job
mentioned in the subject line. This far with no luck. I must confess that
I am not so familiar with the possibilities of GUI XSLT editors. And by
the way, the tools is to be used with RH. Any kind of help would be
