I am generating three different types of output from an XML input. One
of those output types is for consumption by a browser and contains
HTML. The stylesheet which transforms the XML into HTML must itself
generate HTML tags. I thought it would probably be better if I was to
define those tags as XHTML elements (e.g. <html:br/>) and then convert
those to HTML. It seemed to me that this would provide better
maintenance, because my embedded (X)HTML would be checked against the
First question: If I have XHTML in an XSL stylesheet, will it be
validiated (e.g. are the XHTML elements in the XSL stylesheet checked
against the XHTML syntax/schema, or does validation only involve the XML
files being processed).
Second question: How do I get the XHTML embedded in the XSL stylesheet
to come out as HTML. All the examples I have seen are addressing XHMTL
embedded in the input XML being transformed, not in the XSL stylesheet
specifying the transformations.
I suspect this is solvable with a two-pass transformation, but I'm
trying to avoid that.
