RE: RE: Search Engine
I will return with more detail... -----Original Message----- From: David Carlisle [mailto:davidc@xxxxxxxxx] Sent: Tuesday, September 17, 2002 11:20 AM To: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: Re: RE: Search Engine > Can this be done? As a matter of principle anything can be done, it's just a question of how convenient it is. Here though I don't think it is clear what "this" is. <elemA> <elemB> <elemC>House</elemC> <elemE> <elemF>Green</elemF> </elemE> <elemD>Door</elemD> <elemD>Door</elemD> etc... </elemB> That's confusing as the indentation indicates a different hierarchy than the XML structure. elemE is indented as a child of elemC but it is in fact a sibling. Originally you said you wanted to search for strings in elemC then changed that to children of elemB. Can the children have mixed content or multiple descendent text nodes? <elemB> <elemC>House <b>like</b> this</elemC> <foo> <elemC><or>House</or><or>this</or></elemC> </foo> etc. does your search string have to cross eleemnt boundaries, ie would a search for "house like this" find the first child above? once you've found something do you want to reurn the first child of elemB including all its descendents? the string value of teh first child of elemB the first elemC descendent of elemB whatever it snetsting .... as you see the problem appears to be rather underspecified....
