Subject Re: how to use own xml format and own xslt?
Date Thu, 29 Sep 2005 21:35:58 GMT
I've looked at the simpler way and if I understand correctly, it means, 

- my XML document will be processed into HTML (by my existing stylesheets).
- then it will be processed by forrest stylesheets into "document" 
format and
- then other forrest stylesheets recreate the final HTML.

How does look like the final HTML? It's the menus and navigation items 
all around and somewhere inside is my original HTML (everything from 
body element, probably) as it was before? If this is true, I would try it.
What about my own CSS, which is referenced from the original HTML? Will 
it be included? What about colisions in names?

Thanks for suggestions,
