[2.0] <xsl:result-document>

Creates a final result tree. Typically a result tree is written to a file, although an XSLT 2.0 processor is not required to be able to do so. The <xsl:result-document> instruction is useful for generating multiple files from a single stylesheet. It also makes it possible to generate the name of the output file at runtime.



Required Attributes


Optional Attributes


Refers to an output specification defined on a named <xsl:output> element. You can define properties such as an output method or a character encoding, then reuse those output specifications by referencing the name attribute of the appropriate <xsl:output> element.


Defines the URI of this result document. Typically this is used to define a filename for the result document, although an XSLT processor is free to use this URI any way it chooses.

[2.0 – Schema] type

Defines the datatype of the document element. The datatype can be any of the built-in datatypes, or it can be a datatype defined in a schema if you have a schema-aware XSLT 2.0 processor.

The type and validation attributes are mutually exclusive.

[2.0 – Schema] validation

Defines how the new document element will be validated. The validation attribute has four values: strict, lax, preserve, or strip.

validation="strict" means that the XSLT processor looks in all the declared schemas for an element declaration (<xs:element>) with the same name as the document element. It is a fatal error if the processor can’t ...
