An XSL stylesheet can be used to transform XML into HTML, a more common method of web delivery. The HTML markup must conform to the XHTML standards. See Chapter 6 for more information about HTML as well-formed XML tags. In addition, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) may be used in the HTML to provide the formatting. The preferred method of CSS inclusion is with the XHTML <link> element:
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="myStyles.css" />
The table row <tr> is generally a repeated element and may be dynamically produced by the XSL elements <xsl:template> or <xsl:for-each>. Furthermore, the table cell element <td> may be dynamically produced by using the templates for field elements. Listing 7.9 shows a simple table produced with the FMPDSORESULT. You can see more XSL examples in the FileMaker Examples folder included with FileMaker Pro 6 and in the XSLT library on the web site http://www.filemaker.com/xml/xslt_library.html.
<xsl:template match="/"> <table border="1" cellpadding="3" cellspacing="2"> <xsl:for-each select="fmp:ROW"> <tr> <xsl:for-each select="./*"> <!-- get all children and display the results --> <td> <xsl:value-of select="." /> </td> </xsl:for-each> </tr> </xsl:for-each> </table> </xsl:template>
