Title: XSL patterns give me a node--how can I find it's position?
I am using the (IE5) XML DOM to search for a particular node.
I use a pattern like this:
books/book[@bnum = 13241]
It correctly finds a match. Now my question is, how do I determine the position of the found book in "books"? bnum is not in sequential, nor is it in order. I need to know which book it is within the books.childNodes NodeList.
Do I have to step through every element of books.childNodes and match it myself?
Thanks in advance,
