Subject XPathDirectory generator styling help
Date Tue, 31 Oct 2006 17:39:23 GMT
I would like to be able to drop valid xml files into a directory and
have them appear automagically in a menu, with the ability to transform
the title of the article in the file into the text of a link if I want.

I get the XPathDirectory generator to work with the following pipeline

<map:match pattern="articles/*">
	<map:generate type="xpathdirectory" src="articles/{1}">
		<map:parameter name="xpath" value="title"/>
		<map:parameter name="xmlFiles" value="\.x.*$"/>
	<map:serialize type="xml"/>

The above matcher produces the following output.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<dir:directory xmlns:dir=""
name="articles" lastModified="1162301516000" date="31/10/06 07:31"
size="4096" sort="name" reverse="false" requested="true">
	<dir:file name="article1.xml" lastModified="1162312230000"
date="31/10/06 10:30" size="136">
		<dir:xpath query="title">
			<title>Article title</title>

So far, so good. 

However, I would like to transform the XML so I can do other things with
it, such as a quick and dirty dynamic HTML menu or aggregate into
another web page as XML and subsequently transform the title elements
into links. I have attempted the following.

<xsl:template match="/">
    <xsl:template match="article">
        <xsl:value-of select="title"/>

When I add this XSL to the matcher, still serializing as XML I get this
result (when viewing the source).

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>Article title

Which looks OK, but Firefox complains with the following error.

XML Parsing Error: syntax error
Location: http://localhost:8080/sandbox/articles/
Line Number 1, Column 44:<?xml version="1.0"
encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>Article title
Why is it encoded as ISO-8859-1? Everything in my sitemap says UTF-8.

This happens regardless of the charset I specify in Firefox. Amaya also
