   RE: [xml-dev] simple xslt question

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

It's probably better to submit XSLT coding questions on the xsl-list at

Unfortunately I can't see what you're doing wrong; it's very hard to debug
people's code when they don't include it in the posting. Also, you need to
be clear whether the output you show is what you want to generate, or what
you want to see displayed by an HTML browser.

Your transformation is a very simple one, so you must be making a quite
elementary mistake somewhere.
