Thanks. So how does a Saxon 7 user accomplish what s/he was doing with saxon:output in Saxon 6 without a combinatorial explosion in the number of xsl:output variants?


If you have a use case that shows the need to set the attributes
dynamically, rather than just selecting one of a set of preconfigured
output formats, I suggest you submit it to public-qt-comments@xxxxxxx
(The fact that one product offered the capability in an XSLT 1.0
processor won't cut much ice).

I will do that.


The use case I am looking at is chunker.xsl from the docbook xhtml and html stylesheets. As you may already know, it makes use of both saxon:output and exsl:document to parameterize every one of the standard output attributes (and then some). It does also use xalanredirect:write, so perhaps one could argue that the dynamic attributes aren't essential, but they are used.

At least I read the 2.0 spec correctly. Thanks for confirming that.
