B.0 Replacement Data

Replacement data is used with XML documents used as templates to construct e-mail messages, Web pages, and XDS documents. The actual replacement is accomplished by processing the template document with an XSLT style sheet that performs the replacement as part of constructing the output document.

Replacement data is supplied to the Manual Task Service driver through different mechanisms on the Subscriber and Publisher channels.

Replacement data is presented during template processing as an XML document. The replacement data document is passed to the style sheet processing the template as a parameter named replacement-data. If no template is used, the XML document is processed directly by the style sheet.
