The MultiMarkdown ToC

Do you ever feel like you’re never finished? I do, and I’m not happy with the fact that I haven’t been able to make Scrivener trigger the mmd-xslt script following a compile to MultiMarkdown HTML. Fine. As with the original XML epiphany, I knew there had to be code to perform an XSLT transformation in PHP on the server. Certainly there is, and my content-doc.php content template has further evolved into an XSLT transformation powerhouse. If a custom variable is provided with a path to the XSLT file on disk, and that files exists, the code transforms the XML using the provided XSLT style sheet. Here is a snippet:


Something to take note of in the PHP code. transformToDoc returns a DOMDocument object and the $xml variable contains a SimpleXMLElement object returned by the simplexml_load_file() method. If you recall, we insert the XML into the page by echoing the proper child element using the asXml() method. Therefore in order to leave that code intact, I import the DOMDocument back into $xml.
