Making XSLT style sheets from XSLT components
XSLT style sheets can be used to dynamically transform XML to complex presentation
markup for browsers -- but if the presentation is complex, the style sheet
will be too. What's needed is some tool that can build complex style sheets
from simple components. Since XSLT is itself an XML, XSLT can be manipulated
with XSLT; style sheets can write style sheets. This article shows how an
XSLT style sheet that performs some particular runtime transformation can
be built from XSLT components.

Since author David Mertz first introduced his handy utilities for high-level
Python handling of XML documents, users and readers have contributed a number
of extremely useful enhancements and suggestions. This column presents some
of the changes to his module suite, as well as some tips on advanced aspects
of using and customizing the modules. Code samples demonstrate py_obj._XML
attributes, node attributes treated as objects and lists, py_obj magic attribute
behavior, and more.,p=XMLmtrs11

Understanding ebXML
ebXML is a big project with a lot of pieces. This article outlines how the
pieces all fit together. This overview provides an introduction to the ebXML
concept and then looks a bit more specifically at the representation of business
processes, an important starting point for ebXML implementations. Two bits
of sample code demonstrate the ProcessSpecification DTD and a package of
