RE: [xsl] default meta tag Revisted
Date: 9/4/2001 9:14:00 AM
I am trying to develop a single XSL stylesheet which can handle a number of languages. Is there a way of using a parameter or some other method for the value of the encoding attribute in the XSL? i.e. something like this? - <xsl:output encoding="$param"/> Instead of hard-coding i.e. <xsl:output encoding="iso-8859-6"/>, which would then require me to have separate stylesheets for each language that has different encoding (namely Arabic and Chinese). Thanks.

The XSL engine chooses the encoding it wants to use, and automatically adds the correct meta tag. if you just output the meta tag for iso-8859-6, the document will not be written out in that encoding, so it will just be wrong information for the browser. If you want to output the file in iso-8859-6 then use <xsl:output encoding="iso-8859-6"/> then _if_ your XSL engine supports that encoding, it will output the file in that encoding and add a meta element specifying that encoding.
