I assume the tidbit of linked data you want to grab and insert is the "2.5 MB"
?  Am I correct in thinking you're wanting to harvest the file size directly
from the PDF, or does it live in some other XML or metadata file?

Using XSLT 1.0, is it possible to insert linked file attributes during a
transformation?

For example:

My XML:

<dao linktype="simple" href="ms0778.01.07.pdf" actuate="onrequest"
show="new"/>

My XSLT:

<xsl:template match="dao">
<xsl:variable name="dao_title" select="preceding-sibling::unittitle/."/>
<xsl:choose>
<xsl:when test="self::dao[@role='bio']"> <img class="bio" src="{@href}"
title="{@title}" width="180px" height="225px"/> </xsl:when>
<!-- Default handling, loads object in a new window --> <xsl:otherwise> <a
href="{@href}" target="_blank" title="{$dao_title}">[Digital Archival
Object]</a> </xsl:otherwise> </xsl:choose> </xsl:template>

XSLT Output:

<a href="ms0778.01.07.pdf" target="_blank" title="Personal.
1916-1965.">[Digital Archival Object]</a>

Desired XSLT Output:

<a href="ms0778.01.07.pdf" target="_blank" title="Personal.
1916-1965.">[Digital Archival Object, 2.5 MB]</a>

Many thanks,
Nathan
