Default ASP.Net Web Server Controls inside XSLT


I'm trying to include ASP.Net web server controls (ie <asp:Label.... />) in an XSLT file. This appears to be a perfectly natural thing to do, but seems impossible because (I think) of the order in which the xsl transform and the server controls are processed. The problem was mentioned here: http://p2p.wrox.com/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=1342
but the only solution suggested, which was creating a new aspx file, requires too much file io overhead, and isn't a particularly elegant solution.

Any help will be great.

It does seem like perfectly natural fit, and that's what makes it so frustrating. Plus the fact, if you scour the web enough you get a few tangible hints that it is possible.

The best resource I found was this article
+ http://www.devarticles.com/c/a/ASP.N...ols-Using-XML/

Unfortunately, it uses ASP.NET 1.0 and doesn't come with the promised source files (I believe you have to pay for them at another site) ... making it somewhat incomplete.

Also, there's an ebook that seems to specifically deal with the problem but it's no longer available and I'm fearful that it's just an extension of the previous article or that article used it as a resource.
+ http://www.bigwebmaster.com/1143.html

I would like to know how to do this as well, and I'm definitely tired of looking for something that should be better documented.

Stil Searching,
