XmlTransform

Applies an Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformation (XSLT) to an XML document object that is represented as a string variable. An XSLT converts an XML document to another format or representation by applying an Extensible Stylesheet Language (XSL) stylesheet to it.

XmlTransform( xml, xsl [, parameters ] )

Returns: String

Argument Description
xml
any, required

An XML document in string format, or an XML document object

xsl
string, required
parameters
struct, optional

A structure containing XSL template parameter name-value pairs to use in transforming the document. The XSL transform defined in the xslString parameter uses these parameter values in processing the xml.

Examples

styles = '
			<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
			<html xsl:version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
				<body style="font-family:Arial;font-size:12pt;background-color:##EEEEEE">
