The Bible Example
styles/bible.xsl takes as input an XML file containing the
text of the Old or New Testament. These files are not included in the
for space reasons, but can be downloaded from http://www.ibiblio.org/bosak/xml/eg/rel200.zip or from various mirror sites.
They were prepared by Jon Bosak.
The output of the stylesheet is a set of 292 HTML files in a single directory, which together provide a frames-oriented rendition of the text. The application also works with the Old Testament text, but not with the other religious texts included in Jon Bosak's distribution.
To run the stylesheet first create an output directory (say
htmldir), then execute the following from the command line.
For Java:java net.sf.saxon.Transform -s:data/nt.xml -xsl:styles/bible.xsl dir=htmldir
For .NET:dotnet SaxonCS transform -s:data/nt.xml -xsl:styles/bible.xsl dir=htmldir
The final parameter sets the value of the XSLT parameter
dir to the value
htmldir, which is referenced within the stylesheet to select a
directory for output files.
