RE: Newbie: See if a node exists!
I'm sorry if it seams like that. I do appriciate your help and you all gave me a lots of ideas. It wasn't my intension to say that I've found the answer just by my self, that is not true. it was simply a case of putting the right tag in the right place. I would like to thanks to every one that help me, expecialy to David. And yes, you probably are wasting your time with me for I do not have anything new to show you and you probably have a lot to teach me. I aknolage your spanking and turn away. -----Original Message----- From: owner-xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:owner-xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx]On Behalf Of Mike Brown Sent: Friday, June 07, 2002 7:02 PM To: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: Re: Newbie: See if a node exists!

I think this thread accounts for about 20 minutes of your life that you will never get back. He gives you not even an acknowledgement, and then says 'OH I FOUND THE ANSWER: <xsl:apply-templates select="BLOCK"/>' *smacks forehead* I have my charitable days where I educate a dozen newbies, but half the time I end up deleting my email before I finish it, thinking "Why am I wasting my time with this person.." Guess I'm becoming cranky in my old age. - Mike ____________________________________________________________________________ mike j. brown | xml/xslt: http://skew.org/xml/ denver/boulder, colorado, usa | resume: http://skew.org/~mike/resume/ XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
