Dear list,

I have an XSL stylesheet that produces a large XML document. I would
like to output the XML document twice, once indented (for human

In order to achieve what I want, I could, of course, produce two
versions of the stylesheet, one with <xsl:output indent="yes"/> and
the other with <xsl:output indent="no"/>, and then run them
consecutively. The disadvantage of doing that would be that, if I
later want to change the stylesheet, I would have to make the changes

the XML document (indented and not indented) without duplicating the

     <xsl:result-document href="result1.xml" indent="no">
