Ralph GoodwinSubject: Need help with xsl file and xml file I use for drop down menus
Author: Ralph Goodwin
Date: 12 May 2008 06:17 PM
I am using XSL in conjunction with XML and Java script & CSS to create a drop down menu. My drop down menus are not displaying properly, as all of the menus are bunched together. Here is part of my XML file I am using, and inline is also the XSL I am using.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<!-- English Menu -->
<language code="en">
<item id="mainnav_global" file="globalplatform/default.aspx">global platform</item>
<item2 id="mainnav_global" class="greenback" >
<slick><a href="#">International Markets</a></slick>
<slick><a href="#">Product Demand</a></slick>
<slick><a href="#">Seaport Docking</a></slick>
<slick> <a href="#">Airports </a></slick>
<item id="mainnav_leasing" file="leasmanagement/default.aspx">leasing management</item>
<item2 class="yellowback">
<slick><a href="#">Facilities</a></slick>
<slick><a href="#">Properties</a></slick>
<slick><a href="#">Lodging</a></slick>
<slick><a href="#">case Studies</a></slick>
<slick><a href="#">Regional Contacts</a></slick>
<slick><a href="#">Local Contacts</a></slick>

Here is my XSL can someone please help me?

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
<xsl:output method="html"/>
<xsl:param name="baseUrl">http://something/</xsl:param>
<xsl:param name="language">en</xsl:param>
<xsl:template match="/">
<xsl:element name="link">
<xsl:attribute name="rel">stylesheet</xsl:attribute>
<xsl:attribute name="type">text/css</xsl:attribute>
<xsl:attribute name="media">all</xsl:attribute>
<xsl:attribute name="href">
<xsl:value-of select="$baseUrl"/>
<xsl:value-of select="$language"/>
<ul id="primenav" class="cssdropdowns">
<xsl:apply-templates select="//language[@code=$language]/item" />
<xsl:apply-templates select="//language[@code=$language]/item2" />
<li><xsl:apply-templates select="//language[@code=$language]/slick" /></li>
<!-- create an li for each item in the xml -->
<xsl:template match="item">
<xsl:element name="li">
<xsl:attribute name="class">
<!-- Add the href element here -->
<xsl:element name="a">
<xsl:attribute name="id">
<xsl:value-of select="@id"/>
<xsl:when test="@target!=''">
<xsl:attribute name="href">
<xsl:value-of select="normalize-space(@file)"/>
<xsl:attribute name="target">
<xsl:value-of select="@target" />
<xsl:attribute name="href">
<xsl:value-of select="$baseUrl"/>
<xsl:value-of select="$language"/>
<xsl:value-of select="normalize-space(@file)"/>

Hi Ralph,
this seems more a problem with the CSS file you are using; have you tried asking for help in a HTML-specific forum?
