JSTags: xslt-transform tag


This tag converts an XML file to HTML and inserts the resulting code in the page. The conversion is done by merging the XML with an XSLT file. Both, the XML and XSL are retrieved asynchronously.

The tag makes use of inner functions available in IE and Firefox and compatibility with other browsers has not been tested. It has been tested with Firefox 2, IE 7 and Opera 9.
