RE: DOM and XML parser
Hi Jeny! I see, so that means something like match="book[(%1=@price)]". being so that also means that we could do something like match="book[%@price]|magazine[@price=%1]"?? that could be handy :) -----Original Message----- From: owner-xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:owner-xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Jeni Tennison Sent: Monday, August 19, 2002 3:57 PM To: Américo Albuquerque Cc: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: Re: DOM and XML parser Hi Américo, > yes, it is an interesting idea. but that whouldn't be the same as > setting the variable after the match?? > like: > <xsl:template match="book[@price]"> > <xsl:variable name="v" select="@price"/> > ... The same in effect, yes, but the point in fxgrep is that with: <xsl:template match="book[%@price]"> ... </xsl:template> the price attribute could be bound to the variable *during* the matching rather than after finding the node. This saves you from having to scan the node and its relationships with other nodes more than once, which is particularly useful as you get to use more complex match patterns. Anyway, I'm not particularly advocating the idea -- I wouldn't want to see XSLT complicated in this way (after all, it's getting complicated enough by XPath 2.0 without anything like this!) -- just thought it was an interesting approach.
