Notes About Creating Instruction Blocks

Be aware of the following when working with XSLT instruction blocks in the XSLT mapper:

If you mouse over the circle, Stylus Studio displays the XSLT represented by the link (xsl:value-of select="/books/book/@pubdate"/, for example).

This behavior also exists for text blocks created in the mapper that are not also linked to other blocks in the mapper. See Setting a Text Value.
