Hi Romain,


Thanks, that was exactly what I needed!

Try with p:viewport :



Evaluation of a dynamically constructed pipeline (e.g. from a name contained in an attribute) is not possible in vanilla XProc, but if you're fine with sticking to a specific processor (e.g. Calabash) some of them provide an extension step for that (e.g. cx:eval http://xmlcalabash.com/docs/reference/cx-eval.html)


Hope this helps,

I cant find the solution for this, maybe somebody can give me a hint?


I need to insert the contents of some other (step) into an XML document at multiple places. This insertion has parameters/options. Its like an xinclude but not inserting a straight document, instead inserting the results of a (sub)pipeline-with options.


So, for instance, in some document i have at multiple places (on different nesting-levels) an element like <insert:insert option1="..." option2="..."/>


This must call a pipeline(step) with the attributes options1 and options2 passed as its options. The results of this pipeline replace the <insert:insert> element.

I dont see how I can replace all the insert:insert elements and keep the original structure intact.


Even better would be that you can specify the name of the pipeline(step) on the insert:insert element, but I think that's a nogo anyway?
