Despite my other post, of course you can generate the XSL on the fly:


$xslScript <<<EoXSL
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="";>
    <xsl:output method="xml" encoding="UTF-8" />

    <xsl:template match='/'>

    <xsl:template match='{$choice}'><xsl:apply-templates/></xsl:template>

$xslt = new DOMDocument();

// ... etc...
