XSLT <xsl:import> Element


XSLT Element Reference Complete XSLT Element Reference

Definition and Usage

The <xsl:import> element is a top-level element that is used to import the contents of one style sheet into another.

Note: An imported style sheet has lower precedence than the importing style sheet.

Note: This element must appear as the first child node of <xsl:stylesheet> or <xsl:transform>.


Syntax

<xsl:import href="URI"/>

Attributes

Attribute Value Description
href URI Required. Specifies the URI of the style sheet to import

Example 1

Suppose you have a style sheet called "cdcatalog_ex3.xsl":

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">

<xsl:template match="/">
  <html>
  <body>
    <h2>My CD Collection</h2>
    <table border="1">
      <tr bgcolor="#9acd32">
        <th>Title</th>
        <th>Artist</th>
      </tr>
      <tr>
        <td><xsl:value-of select="catalog/cd/title"/></td>
        <td><xsl:value-of select="catalog/cd/artist"/></td>
      </tr>
    </table>
  </body>
  </html>
</xsl:template>

</xsl:stylesheet>

A second style sheet called "cdcatalog_import.xsl" imports "cdcatalog_ex3.xsl":

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">

<xsl:import href="cdcatalog_ex3.xsl"/>

<xsl:template match="/">
  <xsl:apply-imports/>
</xsl:template>

</xsl:stylesheet>

View the XML file, View the XSL file, and View the result

Note: This example will not work in Netscape 6 because it does not support the <xsl:apply-imports> element!
