The number of times this comes up; what belongs in
the parser domain, what in the XSLT domain, what belongs
in the output phase (linearisation?) is becoming
well worth a full faq.

Anyone willing to make a start please?

Phase 0, XML parse:
   Resolve entities;
   Determine source doc encoding
   Validate (if using a validating parser with validation switched on)
   Catalog resolution (if appropriate)
   Build the internal model of the source document
   Build the internal model of the stylesheet

Phase 1, XSLT
   Apply the stylesheet to the input document
   Build the output tree.

Phase 2, Output | Linearisation
   From the output tree, produce the linear output file to the specified
place.


Any additions|corrections please?


TIA, DaveP
