Re: xslt question
Hi, >I am trying to get the 5th table of the 1st table of the 3rd table ONLY from >an HTML document. I've been trying various combinations for a couple of days >now and it is frustrating? [snip] ><xsl:template match="table/table/table"> ><HR> > <xsl:apply-templates /> ></HR> ></xsl:template> When you have a step in an XPath and you don't specify an axis name, then the step uses the 'child' axis. This means that your XPath translates as: a table that is the fifth table that is a direct child of a table that is the first table that is a direct child of a table that is the third table of its parent Since your input is HTML, I guess that the tables aren't nested as direct children of each other, and that instead they are within rows and cells. You probably want something like: table/tr/td/table/tr/td/table I hope that helps, Jeni XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
