Re: outputing a non existant element.
Hi, what about this snippet: <xsl:choose> <xsl:when test="fruit"> <xsl:value-of select="fruit"/> </xsl:when> <xsl:otherwise> <xsl:text>apple</xsl:text> </xsl:otherwise> </xsl:choose> Getting the value out of the schema-file is not possible I think. I know something about a default-value of an attribute. If the attribute is not specified the XSLT-processor returns this default-value. But I heard, this behaviour is not specified too. It works in Xalan.
