For the map documentation produced by the BizTalk Server Documenter tool, it would be great to include improved map documentation in the chm file on the lines of the layout produced by Steve Hart's "HTML Generator Stylesheet for BizTalk Maps" (http://www.hartsteve.com/2006/02/20/biztalk-map-documenter/).

This XSLT file is used to create an html document by transforming a BizTalk .btm files. Note, it does work with BizTalk 2006 too.

We have been using this Map Documenter on our project, and it has been great.  We have also made the following improvements:

- 3 column table layout for direct node-to-node links: source node, destination, node and comments.
- The comments include output of labels and constants.
- Map Paging support.

On our wish-list would also be:

- show fields from both source and destination schemas that are not linked.
- sorting of lines by destination schema fields.

Hi Charlie, I will take a look at the Map Documentor and the possibility of linking it with this tool.

Cheers,
