Re: what are node set fragments and why are they ruining my
node set fragments don't exist, which may account for your confusion. There are two related datatypes node sets, and result tree fragments. > "not being well-formed", A result tree fragment need not have a root element, so it is not a well formed document (it could be linearised to a XML external parsed entity) > Cannot convert value [** RESULT TREE FRAGMENT **] to > a node-set See, node sets are not the same thing as result tree fragments. A node set is what you get back from a select expression so select="aaa[@xxx]|aaa[bbb]" gives you the set of all elements with name aaa and either a xxx attribute or a bbb child. Note this is a set not a list if some aaa element has both xxx attribute and bbb child, you only get it once. The set is however ordered (in document order, normally) A node set is what you can apply templates to <xsl:apply-templates select="aaa[@xxx]|aaa[bbb]"/> ie it's the relevant part of the input document (or some secondary input document via the docyument() function) a result tree fragment is what you produce in a template. You can save it in a variable and while it has similar structure to a node set (it's a bunch of XML nodes) it is essentially opaque to xsl you can not apply templates to it or interrogate its structure. The only thing you can do is use xsl:copy-of to put the value of the variable holding the result tree fragment into the result tree at some point. xt saxon (at least) have an extension function that converts result tree fragments to node sets. > <xsl:for-each select="$members"> members holds the result tree fragment, so you can't select into it. You could use <xsl:for-each select="xt:node-set($members)"> David XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
