Re: Determining if the first child is a para element
I've looked at the FAQ which describes how to determine if a node has a single child element, but I need to know if the first child of a node is an element (para, in this case). The test needs to be done in the parent's <template> element, prior to an <apply-templates/>. Is there a straightforward <if> test I can use for this case? Thanks!
If you don't care what the name of the element is, how about:
This function operates on only the first member of the supplied node list.
I hope this helps.
