XSL is designed for transformation into XML, and in XML, " and " are exactly identical. The only reason it could matter for you is if you're trying to produce something other than XML, in which case, you should take the output of your XSL processor and run it through some normalizer which dereferences your entities. > Also, what is the difference between: > > <xsl:template match="/"> > <xml:text>Some text</xml:text> > </xsl:template> > > and > > <xsl:template match="/"> > Some text > </xsl:template> In this case, there is no difference. XSL processors may ignore whitespace unless that behavior is overridden. So the whitespace around "Some text" in the latter example is ignored, leaving a result identical to the former example. However, if you'd placed a new line *inside* the <xml:text> element, you would see a difference. -Chris -- <!NOTATION SGML.Geek PUBLIC "-//Anonymous//NOTATION SGML Geek//EN"> <!ENTITY crism PUBLIC "-//O'Reilly//NONSGML Christopher R.
