RE: HTML in XML not getting to my html output.
Robert, Look at the following link. I am using this with apply-templates and I get all of my HTML tags in the output. http://www.dpawson.co.uk/xsl/N4554.html#d44e20283 Jim -----Original Message----- From: Robert Nicholson [mailto:robert@xxxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Saturday, April 21, 2001 6:22 PM To: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: RE: HTML in XML not getting to my html output. Thanks for you all your help... It's interesting that I cannot use normalize space I had be using it because my source xml looks like this <note> <b><i>Please note that I am a British and Australian citizen who is a <u>green card holder</u> as of 12th May, 1999.</i></b> </note> now I'm going to get all that whitespace in my html output now because I cannot use normalize ... Anyway I can still use normalize to remove the spaces but keep the child nodes? Without using a CDATA without disabled output escaping, which I know works. So my template rule currently looks like this <xsl:template match="notes"> <p> <xsl:call-template name="separated-list"> <xsl:with-param name="nodes" select="note"/> <xsl:with-param name="separator"> <br/><br/> </xsl:with-param> </xsl:call-template> </p> </xsl:template> <xsl:template name="separated-list"> <xsl:param name="nodes"/> <xsl:param name="separator"/> <xsl:for-each select="$nodes"> <xsl:copy-of select="."/> <xsl:if test="position() != last()"> <xsl:copy-of select="$separator"/> </xsl:if> </xsl:for-each> </xsl:template> I bought Fung Lee's book today so I'm hoping that it'll clear up my understanding of some issues. I like the way it's written and the presentation. I own Mike's book too but I find it difficult to read and for me it's very difficult to remember when things are explained to refer back to them. I attribute this to the academic style in which it is written. If it's any consolation Mike your book has recently travelled with me from SEA-NRT-BKK-NRT-SEA and SEA-LHR-SEA so too have a lot of my other books ;-) Also, MS-Word when you import the .html doesn't interpret the <br/><br/> as a blank line does anybody know what will to the trick? My resumes end up a .doc files but pass through as .html files as MS hasn't got workable .xml format for word documents yet. The one thing I don't understand is why value-of when it converts to a string discards nested tags. <note> <b><i>Please note that I am a British and Australian citizen who is a <u>green card holder</u> as of 12th May, 1999.</i></b> </note> I take it only considers text nodes? Where is this explained? So the only way to stringify something is to use either text or CDATA to make them interpreted as text nodes? Is there anything like normalize space that will consider nested elements? > -----Original Message----- > From: owner-xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx > [mailto:owner-xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx]On Behalf Of Jeni Tennison > Sent: Saturday, April 21, 2001 1:41 PM > To: Robert Nicholson > Cc: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx > Subject: Re: HTML in XML not getting to my html output. > > > Hi Robert, > > > From what I can tell it's not at the point of the value of.
