Hi,

So I thought I had a good idea to get character maps working in my xproc
pipeline by using a  xsl:result-document within an xslt file thinking it
would bypass the xproc pipeline output thus allowing the character maps in
my xslt to work.

I then found in the spec it says "The use-character-maps parameter in [
Serialization<http://www.w3.org/TR/2010/REC-xproc-20100511/#xml-serialization>]
specification has not been provided in the standard serialization options
provided by this specification." so that explains why it does not work.

I found that the result-document in not saved when running with the pipeline
even if the href is hard-coded with a file name that outputs correctly when
running in oxygen.  I then read in the xproc archive that suggested the
output from a result document appears in a secondary port.


QUESTIONS:
Q: Can someone show me how to access a result-document using a secondary
port that and what if you have multiple xsl result-documents?

Q: Would having an option that allows an xslt file to save result documents
directly and thus not on a port be a bad idea? I assume this would give
character maps a chance to work and might be desired generally as a feature.



Let me know your thoughts.
Thanks

Alex
