Re: Do not need the attribute
When xsl:value-of is processed the current context node is "rundate", which is an element. The value of an element is the value of all the text nodes that are descendants of the element. So that's why you get "1999-04-24542.1000" What you want is the text of the current element or just "rundate" and you want to ignore the text of "rate". So change your xsl:value-of from <xsl:value-of select="."/> to <xsl:value-of select="text()"/> -Keith Sharmila Pandith wrote: > > Hi, > > I have the following in my XML. > <rundate hasrun="no">1999-04-24<rate basis="" > unit="">542.1000</rate></rundate> > > I need to get: 1999-04-24 > > So I do: > <xsl:for-each select="advertisement/publication/class/rundate"> > <run-info> > <start-date-time norm="" til-forbid=""> > <xsl:value-of select="."/> > </start-date-time> > </run-info> > </xsl:for-each> > > But I get: 1999-04-24542.1000.
