Re: Are variables allowed in XPATHs?
It might help if you gave us a look at the exact pattern to which XMLSpy was objecting.
Sorry, I thought the problem was pretty generic and didn't want to muddy things by being too specific. Ie, is it legal to use a variable in an XPATH?
Here's the code it's complaining about (apologies for the line wrapping):
<xsl:template name="delete-section" match="/main/document/item[property[(name='report') and (value=$sectionToDelete)]]">
In other words, all I'm trying to do is have the XPATH pick out a subtree of the document that has a property element with a <name> element whose content is "report" and a <value> element whose content is whatever is in the sectionToDelete variable.
That variable happens to come from a separate XSL file, but I wouldn't think that should be important ... although it is to me, for the reasons I mentioned previously.
