Server side includes with XSLT

I want to know if its possible to use server side includes (SSI) with xslt.

Usually in html the way we do it is by using the following syntax:
<!-- ssi code here -->

But the start & end tags are treated as comments in xslt. Is there a way out? I appreciate any response.

Thank you.

You can generate comments using XSLT using the xsl:comment instruction. Or, if the SSI comments are in your XML source, you can match them using comment() and pass unchanged to the output, for example:

<xsl:template match="comment()">

How do you specify href in <xsl:include href="" />?

let's say I have two xsl files


and we want to include second.xsl in main.xsl

In main.xsl I do:

<xsl:include href="second.xsl" />
<xsl:include href="com/test/second.xsl" />

IN neither way the transformer see it.
I am using java.
I agree. Here's the link:
