Problems with sort.
I'm still not able to get my sort to work, unfortunately. Again, here is my XML document and XSL. I want it to sort by whatever the element is in /PAGE/@sort. I have tried so many combinations to try and tell it where to find the attribute @sort. I'm assuming that not finding it is what's causing it not to sort. <?xml version="1.0"?> <PAGE title="Display Projects" sort="title"> <projects> <project> <number> 1114 </number> <title> Test Title </title> <site_code> INCTM </site_code> <department> 0 </department> </project> </PAGE> <xsl:template match="projects"> <xsl:apply-templates> <xsl:sort select="Here is where I need help!"/> </xsl:apply-templates> </xsl:template> Brian Kay Michael wrote: > > I have this code: > > > > <xsl:apply-templates> > > <xsl:sort select="/PAGE/@sort"/> > > </xsl:apply-templates> > > > > It doesn't give an error, but isn't sorting by the value of > > "/PAGE/@sort". > > Since the sort key is an absolute path, its value doesn't depend on the > context node, so it will have the same value for every node in the node-set > you are trying to sort.
