Subject Re: Reading into xsl:value-of directly from attributes file
Date Mon, 23 Nov 2009 10:04:08 GMT
Hi Sangam,

Am I correct in thinking that you are after a way of specifying variables
externally?  Or are you refering to an attribute called 'file'?  Refering to
variables declared in external (from the main xsl) is straight forward as
the following example should show:


<xsl:include href='props.xsl' />
<xsl:template match='root'>
    <xsl:copy-of select="$color" />

<xsl:variable name="color" select='"red"' />

Aplying the stylesheet would yield

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

If I am way off track here can you please try re-wording the problem and
perhaps provide a concrete example of what you want.

You may also like to try asking for help in an xslt-centric forum e.g
