                  throws TransformerException,
                         TransformerConfigurationException,
                         SAXException,

                         java.io.FileNotFoundException
Extension element for piping an XML document through a series of 1 or more transformations.
Common usage pattern: A stylesheet transforms a listing of documents to be
 transformed into a TOC. For each document in the listing calls the pipeDocument
 extension element to pipe that document through a series of 1 or more stylesheets 
 to the desired output document.
 
 Syntax:
 <xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
                xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
                xmlns:pipe="http://xml.apache.org/xalan/PipeDocument"
                extension-element-prefixes="pipe">
 ...
 <pipe:pipeDocument   source="source.xml" target="target.xml">
   <stylesheet href="ss1.xsl">
     <param name="param1" value="value1"/>
   </stylesheet>
   <stylesheet href="ss2.xsl">
     <param name="param1" value="value1"/>
