Re: Reverse Tokens Template
Hi Stephen, This is a really easy task. Using FXSL one would write the following: <xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" xmlns:vendor="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:xslt" exclude-result-prefixes="vendor" > <xsl:import href="strSplit-to-Words.xsl"/> <xsl:output method="text"/> <xsl:template match="/"> <xsl:variable name="vrtfWords"> <xsl:call-template name="str-split-to-words"> <xsl:with-param name="pStr" select="/*"/> <xsl:with-param name="pDelimiters" select="' ,.;	 '"/> </xsl:call-template> </xsl:variable> <xsl:for-each select="vendor:node-set($vrtfWords)/word"> <xsl:sort select="position()" order="descending" data-type="number"/> <xsl:value-of select="."/> <xsl:if test="position() != last()"> <xsl:text> </xsl:text> </xsl:if> </xsl:for-each> </xsl:template> </xsl:stylesheet> When applied on this source.xml: <t>Hello world</t> the desired result is produced: world Hello Hope this helped. ===== Cheers, Dimitre Novatchev. http://fxsl.sourceforge.net/ -- the home of FXSL "Greene, Stephen" <Stephen.Greene@xxxxxx> wrote in message news:10C94843061E094A98C02EB77CFC32875874D8@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx > Hi, > > I have been trying to modify (un-sucessfully) Dimitre Novatchev's template > to reverse the order of "words" in a string (words being character > substrings seperated by a space character).
