question rules
To get the value of a source tree node into an attribute value of a result
tree node, you can use a syntax with curly braces. So this should work: 

  <xsl:template match="title">
    <meta name="{.}" content="text"/>

Subject: Question: rules in a XSLT document

Hello again! 
I'm sorry to ask you questions that must seem easy but I didn't find the
in the XSL faq, and I'm really lost for this one:

I want to transform a XML document into another one.
My problem is about a tag I want to include in my final document.

my initial document looks like :
    this is the title

I want my final document to look like:  
    <meta name="this is the title" content="text"/>

So I tried this rule of transformation in my XSLT document : 

  <xsl:template match="title">
    <meta name="<xsl:value-of select="."/>" content="text"/>

and it obviously doesn't work... really, I can't understand which way I
write my transformation rule to obtain what I've explained above.

It would be great if someone could explain me!
Thank you !

Yannick Nicolas, software engineer
