   Re: [xml-dev] Simple XSLT Problem

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Hi Mike,

Instead of
<text>Hello World!</text>

<xsl:text>Hello World!</xsl:text>

I hope this helps!

I just tried my hand at using XSLT to extract some information from an
XML file that I have been given, and I am running into a (potentially
stupid) problem. I continue to simplify my XSLT query hoping to get to
a point where I see some expected output, and I am still having
difficulties with the files listed below. I am using the latest stable
version of Xalan (1.9.0) on a Linux box.

The problem is that when I apply Xalan to the files below, I get N
blank lines of output, where N is the number of lines in the original
XML file. I would be less confused if N was the number of presentation
elements in my file...but that's not even the case.

I've been banging my head against this one for a little while, and I'm
sure there are people on this list who have a quick answer. Thanks in
advance for any assistance.
