RE: Accessing a node name from within <xsl:attribute>
Mike Kay's book is a great beginner's guide and reference. Look for Wrox Press's "XSLT Programmer's Reference". We have purchased piles of this book at Microsoft and everyone seems to like it. The first thing to establish, though, is that Mike Kay is definitely not the person to ask XSL questions regarding Microsoft. I think he has a filter set up that detects keywords like "IE5" or "Microsoft" and automatically spits out some form of "Microsoft [expletive deleted]" without regard to the actual question asked. He was perfectly capable of answering your question, and would have answered it had you pretended to be using Saxon. He is also perfectly aware that IE5 shipped before the XSLT spec was finished and thus implements an older version of the spec. He is also aware that there have been many updates to XSLT support for IE5 available free for download at http://msdn.microsoft.com/xml. With the updated parser you can also download the newer SDK, which includes online references for XSLT/XPath and code samples.
