Is there a way of using CGI and XML to associate a stylesheet with a XML document? For instance the CGI would ask...
for the name of the XML document and then associate it with a given stylesheet and thus the resulting HTML page would be displayed.
Yes. Stylesheets can be associated with XML documents using a processing instruction e.g.
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="mystyle.xsl"?> <foo> </foo>
The CGI script could pre-pend the stylesheet PI to the retrieved XML document on-the-fly.
