Re: XSL month sorting (chronologically)
Hi Murali, > I made the change you suggested. I use the xalan > processor(xalan.jar, crimson.jar). It gives an exception like below. > "date" is an xml element and so i think it does not require the > quotes. The brackets have to balance within an XPath expression, and you're missing one. It should be: <xsl:sort select="string-length(substring-before('JanFebMarAprMayJunJulAugSepOctNovDec', substring(date,4,3)))" data-type="number" /> ^ extra bracket here When you get errors like that, try running with another processor that might give you a more helpful error message. In this case, I used Saxon and it said: Error at xsl:sort on line 40 ..... Error in expression .....: expected ")", found "EOF" Cheers, Jeni --- Jeni Tennison http://www.jenitennison.com/ XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
