node() as pattern
I'm having a problem understanding the use of node() in a pattern. given a simple file (pretend no whitespace) <doc> <nd1> ..</nd1> <nd2>..</nd2> <nd3/> </nd1> </doc> I believe I can get to any node using a node based pattern, e.g. <xsl:template match='/node()/node()'> should match on nd3 but my theory isn't working out. Anyone got a nice clear description of what's happening with such as match='/node()/node()/node()/node()/node()' please? Mikes book, 432 tells me node() == ./child::node() So with a stylesheet full of 'only' matches of this form, all root relative, none of the templates are instantiated. regards DaveP ************snip here************** - NOTICE: The information contained in this email and any attachments is confidential and may be legally privileged.
