creating a node-set at run-time
Hi everyone, We have this xml as our input document: <list> <item ref="item1.xml"/> <item ref="item2.xml"/> <item ref="item3.xml"/> <item ref="item4.xml"/> </list> We want to go through each of the item elements and using the document function, load each item?.xml file and check a specific attribute in the root node of that loaded document to see if it matches a certain value. If it does match we want to add the value of the ref attribute to a node-set. We want to have a variable to which this node-set is assigned, so we can do some processing on it at a later time (we want to run a diff on it against another node-set amongst other things). Basically this is like storing items into a variable (eg var = var + new_item), but as we know, you can't reassign values to a variable. So can this be done using XSLT? I was trying to come up with a recursive algorithm to do this, but am not sure how. Thanks in advance. Mike. XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
