Selva GaneshSubject: How to use following-sibling & starts-with function
Author: Selva Ganesh
Date: 09 May 2009 05:58 AM
I heartly appreciate
I have 3 question:
1. following-sibling function not working in the “si – docid” attribute
2. starts-with function not working in “laid” element
3. choose method want correct (I need single dates element) in my xsl repeated the <dates>
This is my XSL:

<xsl:template match="div[@class='DocContainer']">
<xsl:element name="si">
<xsl:attribute name="docid"><xsl:value-of select="following-sibling::div[@class ='LegPrelims']/h1[@class = 'LegNo'][1]" /></xsl:attribute>
<xsl:attribute name="type"><xsl:text>reg</xsl:text></xsl:attribute>
<xsl:template match="title"/>
<xsl:template match="style"/>
<xsl:template match="div[@class[.='LegPrelims']]">
<xsl:template match="h1">
<xsl:element name="si-nos" >
<xsl:element name="si-year" ><xsl:value-of select="substring-before(., ' ')"/></xsl:element>
<si-no><xsl:value-of select="substring-after(., '. ')"/></si-no></xsl:element>
<xsl:template match="div[@class[.='LegDate']]">
<xsl:when test="p='Made'">
<xsl:element name="made"><xsl:attribute name="date">
<xsl:value-of select="p[@class[.='LegDateDate']]"/></xsl:attribute>
<xsl:value-of select="p[@class[.='LegDateText']]"/></xsl:element></xsl:when>
<!--<xsl:when test="(starts-with(p, 'Laid'))">-->
<xsl:when test="p='Laid before Parliament'">
<xsl:element name="laid"><xsl:attribute name="date">
<xsl:value-of select="p[@class[.='LegDateDate']]"/></xsl:attribute>
<xsl:value-of select="p[@class[.='LegDateText']]"/></xsl:element></xsl:when>
<xsl:element name="in-force"><xsl:element name="in-force-text"><xsl:attribute name="date">
<xsl:value-of select="p[@class ='LegDateDate']"/></xsl:attribute>
<xsl:value-of select="p[@class[.='LegDateText']]"/></xsl:element></xsl:element>

This my input:
<div id="ContentMain"><div class="DocContainer"><div class="LegPrelims">
<h1 class="LegNo">2009 No. 1023</h1>
<p class="LegSubject">Excise</p>
<h1 class="LegTitle">The Excise </h1>
<div class="LegDate">
<p class="LegDateText">Made</p><p class="LegDateDate">22nd April 2009</p>
<div class="LegDate">
<p class="LegDateText">Laid before Parliament</p><p class="LegDateDate">22nd April 2009</p>
<div class="LegDate">
<p class="LegDateText">Coming into force</p><p class="LegDateDate">1st June 2009</p>


This is expected output

<si docid="s2009no815" type="reg">
<ti al="c">The Excise</ti>
<made date="20090422">Made</made>
<laid date="20090422">Laid before Parliament</laid>
<in-force date="20090601"><in-force-text>Coming into force</in-force-text>

1. The node is a child node, not a sibling.

2. Seems to be working when you comment in that code.

3. I suggest making a template to convert the dates from one format to another. Use substring-before and substring-after to get the parts of the date.
