This isn't an SSI or a CGI board, but I hear ColdFusion is quite SSI related, and it's the best place for this question I hope.
I'm wondering if it's possible to do something like this:
"html" page (actually XSL transformed XML page) has an SSI #include or #exec, then an SSI #if statement that does "something" based on a computation in the CGI...
Here's my questions with relation to that..
If I nest SSI functions will they be called in child > parent order or parent > child order? Can I read/write form/environment parameters in the CGI and read them back in the SSI #if?
I may have no need to do this eventually, but I only want my target modder-base to need to alter XSL files (to change style etc) and not look at CGI scripts... CSS is ok but not quite good enough, and I don't want to "read" XSL files in the CGI to simulate seamlessness... :( Any helper will get big shouts on my new site!
