hi all,

i know overwriting a file isnt a good idea and there are many good reason
for not doing it, but i need to and i hope to get some tipps for the best
way to reach my goal.

i have the following situation:
i have an xml file that contains a few "object" elements (stored in similar
way to html) and i have a html document, holding some kind of "register"
with information about such objects. what i want to do with xslt is to read
the xml file and if any object elements found - put the information about
them on the end of this "register" (and overwrite the html file). now i
wonder what would be better - call the xslt for the xml and open the html
file in the stylesheet itself or the other way around? what difference could
it make?

many thanks for any opinions!
