Fw:  XSLT stylesheet looping through the same node (recursion?)
Hi Michael,
Just want to let you know that I have been able to get the value 'fishing' with the following lines of code even though I am still puzzled as to why it is not necessary to go back up to previous level (<p> - assuming currently in <p><strong>Hobbies:</strong></p>):

<xsl:template match="ns:p[ns:strong='Hobbies:']">

<xsl:for-each select="ns:a/text()[normalize-space() != '']">

<hobbies><xsl:value-of select="normalize-space()"/></hobbies>




Thanks again for all your help,

Hi Michael,
No, I was using NotePad++ which displayed it different to with Internet Explorer this time:
- <p>
  <a shape="rect" href=http://www.hobbies.com/fishing title="Shark Hunting">fishing</a>


Thanks for pointing this out,

We are finally seeing the light at the end of this tunnel. I managed to extract every element values in <p> (single/multiples) except one with the following structure:




<a shape="rect" href="http://www.hobbies.com/fishing" title="Shark Hunting">Coral Bay</a>




I tried the following combinations to get the value 'fishing' without much luck:


<xsl:template match="ns:p[ns:strong='Hobbies:']">

<xsl:for-each select="text()[normalize-space() != '']">

<hobbies><xsl:value-of select="normalize-space()"/></hobbies>




This should work. But you said that <hobbies><xsl:value-of select="../ns:a"/></hobbies> works (starting from the <strong> element). I would expect that to return <hobbies>Coral Bay</hobbies>. Are you sure the input is what you say it is?
