Subject SGML comments and XSL
Date Sun, 17 Mar 2002 01:26:02 GMT
New cocoon user. Apologies if this is documented somewhere, but I can't
find it. 

I'm attempting to use XSL to translate XML documents, basically I'm
'skinning' the XML content with a variety of layout templates (XSL). The
current output format is HTML/XHTML.

I did a simple test and it worked great. However I ran into a kink when
I upgraded the template to a full blown layout. I'm using CSS and
JavaScript, which customarily are escaped using the standard SGML
comments <!-- -->. Since XML is SGML they're also obviously XML
comments, and as such are being (properly) stripped out of the template
and hence out of my output.

I tried embedding the comments in CDATA sections, but then they were
translated to character escapes. I then tried embedding escaped
characters &lt; and &gt; as in '&lt;!-- --&gt;'. Also to no avail.

I did some searching through the list archives and found ways to embed
comments in XSP, but not XSL. Is there a simple solution, other than
switching to XSP?

Thanks much for any help and pointers.

Corey
