Dynamically switching between different XSLT stylesheets

20
Hello,

I'd like to use XML + XSLT to create a sortable table. The XML stores the data, and two different XSL stylesheets display the table, sorted in two different ways. What I don't understand is how to allow the user to switch between the two stylesheets (and hence two sorting options).

I can provide code snippets if that would help, but I'm basically looking for the general concept here - how can you dynamically switch XSLT stylesheets (if it's helpful, my reference point is CSS stylesheets, which are pretty easy to switch using php)?

Thanks!

Hello, TAL651!

Here's an example code I pulled up for you, see if that helps:

Have a good week-end!
