Hey Todd:

Well, you hit it that that's not the best format for XML to be in,
but....

Try out:

<xsl:value-of select="normalize-space(substring-before(group, key))"/>

HTH!

Subject:  text values of nodes


I have some XML (unfortunately I did not generate it, else I would have 
created it in a manner that was easier to transform) that is extremely 
nested, and am having problems extracting elements of it vis XSL

can I grab just the group value (abc)?

when I try to grab <xsl:value-of select="group"/> I get back all the
values 
contained within the entire GROUP node (abc 8873 X32 20020430 C 6 P)

is there a way to work with this poorly formed XML?


<group>abc
    <key>8873
        <idcode>X32
            <date>20020430
                <rectype>C
                    <IST>6</IST>
                    <PRIMISS>P</PRIMISS>
                </rectype>
            </date>
        </idcode>
    </key>
</group>
