RE: Xalan Transformation Error
Thank You Carstein, That was about the beyond the call of duty. I sincerely appreciate you helping get me that information.

This could improve overall readability and make debugging more easier =) Okay, I found a bit of code which reads <xsl:choose> <xsl:when test="item_type[.='hidden']"> <input type="hidden"> <xsl:attribute name="name"><xsl:value-of select="item_name"/></xsl:attribute> <xsl:choose> <xsl:when test="/ad/content_type[.='~default~']"> <xsl:attribute name="value"><xsl:value-of select="default_contents"/></xsl:attribute> </xsl:when> <xsl:otherwise> <xsl:attribute name="value"><xsl:value-of select="user_contents"/></xsl:attribute> </xsl:otherwise> </xsl:choose> here you use <xsl:when test="item_type[.='hidden']"> perhaps you should check the lines where use use test expression like these...I would guess these are causing the error, since all other occurences of "hidden" and "text" are within <input type="..."/> nodes, which are, on first reading, well built. Sorry, since I don't have an xml document as input, I can only guess item_type is an attribute, if so, why don't you just use <xsl:when test="@item_type='hidden'"/> ? If this is a child node of the currently processed node, which one I wasn't able to follow, since I didn't have the will and time to check on your code that much, then why don't you just use (./item_type) = 'hidden'. The node will eventually be evaluated to a string, thus you needn't use that complicated an expression as the one above. As long as the input document is formed as such, that the <item_type/> node does not contain any whitespace or other characters, e.g. carriage-return or else. If this is the case, you should use an XPATH function, e.g. xf:normalize-[...](node) to make this evaluation of the node item_type always work correctly. Have a look at the specification 'bout XQuery and XPath Functions, see http://www.w3.org/TR/xquery-operators/ although this is a working draft, and an old one by that, it should give a insight on what is possible regarding string functions etc. Don't know if there is a newer version of that document, though, it was hard enough to find the old one =) Bye Carsten XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
