  <p>Metacat can be set on the fly to either transform or not transform a resultset
39
  from XML.  This is achieved by setting the 'qformat' servlet parameter to 'html'
39
  from XML.  This is achieved by setting the 'qformat' servlet parameter to the name
40
  of a <a href="metacatread.html">style-set</a> or to 'html'
40 41
  or 'xml'.  When qformat is set to html, Metacat will transform the resultset based 
41
  on the stylesheet specified in the resultStyleURL of the 
42
  <a href="./properties.html">Metacat Properties</a> file.  This XSL stylesheet
42
  on the default style-set configured in the 
43
  <a href="./properties.html">Metacat Properties</a> file.  This style-set
43 44
  defines the rules for how to translate the XML tags into HTML tags.

  <p>A user can specify that a certain doctype is always transformed using a 
46
  specific stylesheet by registering that stylesheet in the Metacat Catalog.  
47
  The Catalog is stored in the database table xml_catalog and contains a
48
  list of doctypes and the stylesheets used to transform them.  If a doctype 
49
  has an assigned stylesheet, whenever a document of that type is "read" from 
50
  Metacat and qformat is set to HTML, the document will be transformed using
51
  the assigned stylesheet.
