       Perhaps you could create an xml file with tags


    or something. You could automatically compute this with a script using
    imagemagick's identify or the file command in linux. Then in your xsl
    file you could just declare a variable like

    <xsl:variable name="width"

    and use the width and height variables to decide how to rotate the image.
