Re: syntax question: using a variable inside format-number()
| It returns a nice percentage. However, I have several Asset categories so a | variable ($curcat) has been set in my stylesheet to keep track of the | current category. | | I tried the following: | <xsl:value-of select="format-number(/AssetAnalyzer/$curcat,'#00%')"/> | | but it bombed giving a "Node Test expected" error. If $curcat already contains the string value you're trying to format (or the element that contains the string value) you can just do: select="format-number($curcat,'#00%')" ______________________________________________________________ Steve Muench, Lead XML Evangelist & Consulting Product Manager BC4J & XSQL Servlet Development Teams, Oracle Rep to XSL WG Author "Building Oracle XML Applications", O'Reilly http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/orxmlapp/ XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
