xslt store a value
<xsl:variable name="test_var" select="<xsl:value-of

** The above is incorrect **
you should try instead, the following

<xsl:variable name="test_var">
<xsl:value-of select="@root_attribute"/>

and if you want to make use of a variable in another template, you may wish to pass that variable as a parameter to the template..
and u can then use that variable.
Hope this helps

Hi all,
I have a xml document as:
	<myroot  root_attribute="test_val">
While processing the node "a1" using XSL, i need to access the value of
attribute "root_attribute" of it's parent. I tried to do in the following
way, but could not have a value-of construct within variable construct.
	<xsl:template match="myroot">
	<xsl:variable name="test_var" select="<xsl:value-of
	<xsl:for-each select="child::*">
		<xsl:apply-templates select="*"></xsl:apply-templates>

	<xsl:template match="a1">
	<xsl:copy-of select="$test_var"/>

How can i access the attribute of some node in the template match of another
node? Any help is appreciated.
