php delimiting input
Thanks for the reply. Upon reflection, I realized that I had the solution and then saw your email. However, I also realized that this particular solution won't work if my checkbox elements are inside of a TABLE element (and they are) because the context for the position() and last() is the enclosing TD element.

Any suggestions on how I can "globalize" the context short of doing two passes on the xml source (to reduce it to, say, just the FORM element)?

Hi Ted,

The following transformation produces the wanted result. Note the use

<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"

  <xsl:output method="text" />
  <xsl:strip-space elements="*"/>

     <xsl:template match="/">

     <xsl:template match="input[@type = 'checkbox']">
       <xsl:value-of select="@name" />
       <xsl:if test="not(position() = last())">,</xsl:if>


When applied on this source.xml:

  <input type="checkbox" name="first"/>
  <input type="checkbox" name="second"/>
  <input type="checkbox" name="third"/>

The result is:

Periodically I have a need to delimit the output from a template.

In PHP I push all the variables onto an array and then "join" them with
a ", " into a string. Works great.

In XSLT I would start by using the following:

     <xsl:template match="/">array(<xsl:apply-templates
     <xsl:template match="input[@type = 'checkbox']">"<xsl:value-of
select="@name" />"</xsl:template>

The problem here, however, is that the result would consist of:
array("fist""second""third") and what I want is:

Any suggestions on how to do that in XSLT?
