I am trying to create a link that will, when you click on the symptom text, will show a list of the corresponding corrective actions in an inline frame.

this is the simple stylesheet I have gotten so far:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="2.0"

<xsl:template match="/">

<style type="text/css">

.linktext {
font-family: Arial;
font-size: 9pt;
font-weight: bold;
color: black;
text-decoration: none

a:visited { text-decoration: none }
a:hover { text-decoration:none; color: blue; }
a:active {text-decoration: none; color:red}

.header {
font-family: Arial;
font-size: 12pt;
font-weight: bold

<table style="width:100%">

<th width="40%" class="header">Symptoms</th>
<th width="60%" class="header">Corrective Actions</th>
<td align="top">
<table border="0">
<xsl:for-each select="fault-knowledge-base/symptoms/symptom">
<td><a href="??" target="I2" class="linktext"><xsl:value-of select="text"/></a></td>
<iframe name="I2" marginwidth="3" marginheight="3" height="580" width="100%" src="" align="left" frameborder="0" scrolling="auto">
Your browser does not support inline frames or is currently configured not to display inline frames.


If anybody can help, I would greatly appreciate it.

The way you have it set up at the moment, you'd probably need a javascript solution involving show/hide on elements.

Clicking on the link calls a onclick_ method which runs a javascript function, passing a single argument, say ID.

Use a getElementsByTagName to get all of the elements.
Then run a for-each on the NodeList.
If it has the right value in it's attribute, set it to show. Otherwise, set it to hide.
(Note I'm not a javascript expert, so don't know the exact code for this solution. Suggest googling for it.)
