Re: to extract the longest string (fwd)
Rajagopal, >I tested the following code in SAXON and I could not get the >expected longest string, which is "cxxyycc". What did you get instead? Which processor are you using? The template that I posted was a cut down one, just assigning the longest string to a variable. If you want to do something with that string (like display it) then you have to add code to do that, e.g.: <xsl:template match="table"> <xsl:variable name="longest"> <xsl:apply-templates select="row" mode="get-longest" /> </xsl:variable> <xsl:message>Longest: <xsl:value-of select="$longest" /></xsl:message> </xsl:template> When I do this, SAXON 5.4.1 gives me the message: Longest: 'cxxyycc' As does Xalan-C 0.40.0.
