i want to generate wml file from a xsl file:-
greeting.xml:-
---------------
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<greetings>
<greeting>Hello World</greeting>
</greetings>

greeting.xsl:-
---------------
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="1.0">
<xsl: output method="wml"/>
<xsl:template match="/">
<wml>
<card id="greeting" title="Hello World">
<p>
<xsl:apply-templates select="greetings/greeting">
<p>
</card>
</wml>
</xsl:template>
<xsl:template match="greeting">
<xsl:value-of select="."/>
</xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>
***************************
I used the greeting.xml and greeting.xsl to generate greeting.wml file by using two XSLT processors:-
1-Xalan
2-Clark's XT
but unable to generate the wml file from both of them,none of the XLLT processors generate the wml file.
Can anyone help me in generating the wml file using XSLT processor.Plz let me know from which processor i can do this and what will be the procedure.
Thanks in advance

Hi
Here are the changes u need to make in ur xsl file
1.There is no space between 'xsl:' and 'output'
2.u cant have just <p>. u need to use it as <p/> or <p></p>. remember in xml, u cant have tags which are not closed.
3.xsl:apply-templates is not closed.
4. also xsl utput method supports 3 values for its 'method' attribute. html,xml,text. I am not sure if u can have wml. but if u specify 'html' there it will very well generate a wml file the way u wanted. others any insights??
