Re:  XSLT Stylesheet test for special character
Hi Bjoern,

 

Neither did string(.) = 'Firstname:' or  text() = 'Firstname:' work hence it branched to the otherwise option instead.

Thanks for trying anyway,

 

Jack

Your test looks for a <Firstname:> child element, which cannot exist.
You have to compare the string value of the strong element to the string
'Firstname:', e.g. using

  string(.) = 'Firstname:'

or

  text() = 'Firstname:'
