Re: outputing a non existant element.

what about this snippet:

    <xsl:when test="fruit">
        <xsl:value-of select="fruit"/>

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.
