Anything is possible! You could also process it with DSSSL - rather than having the stylesheet emit HTML, it could emit a series of "mkdir -p <id>/<id>...." "openjade -t fot" produces a tree of the "flow objects" in XML format - i.e. the things that actually need to be rendered. I suppose it is a bit like "fop". "fot" is really openjade's internal representation of the processed data - the HTML/TeX/RTF or whatever backends are really turning the Flow Object Tree (FOT) into some other format. Anyway, the FOT might be a better/easier thing to process to get the ids in the correct order etc. for creating directories. In a sense whether you choose to do it with XSL or DSSSL is immaterial. Either way would require some work. The neatest solutions require more work! > > Regards, > > Shlomi Fish > Ian.
