RE: Selecting Parent Nodes with Empty Children
I tried the syntax in my jscript code but it generated an error. It looks like it doesn't like the "-" in normalize-space. The expression "//VALUE[normalize-space(.)='']" works when I check it using an XPATH tester. Is there some type of character escaping that I may need to do to use the expression in var objNodes=objXML.selectNodes("//VALUE[normalize-space(.)='']")? -----Original Message----- From: J.Pietschmann [mailto:j3322ptm@xxxxxxxx] Sent: Friday, April 05, 2002 3:35 PM To: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: Re: Selecting Parent Nodes with Empty Children Hellstern, Manny wrote: > Sorry for the poor phrasing.
