   RE: [xml-dev] How to deal with xpath's Comparison expression ?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Thanx very much!
I am sorry that I posted the question in a hurry,and In fact I want to test
the operaton '='. The "contain" routines you worte is all right.
At last I found that my xpath sentence is correct,the problem is the xml
file itself. Cos it contains a "carrage return" ,and the equal operation
('=')is sensitive for this.

Thanks Florent Georges for the website :)

  From the original problem description ("How can I find out the node
which contains the 'aaabbb' text"), I'd even say:

    book/text()[contains(., 'aaabbb')]

  This is *the* node that *contains* 'aaabbb'.  But you're right, the
OP is more likely to need one of yours.

  PS to the OP: XSL List, at mulberrytech.com, is a better place to
discuss about XPath.
