RE: Newline problems

Hmm, so there is output, but it consists of empty elements. I understand better now... that fits exactly with what you thought, that the values of the text nodes in your input document differ from what you expected by having newlines on them. > Here is the source xml and the xsl in more detail: > > <!DOCTYPE ABC [ > ... > ]><ABC> > ... > <info> > <attr> > <name> > ponumber</name> > <atomicValue> > 12345</atomicValue> > </attr> > ... > </info> > ... > </ABC> > > > > <?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "UTF-8"?> > <xsl:transform xmlns:xsl = > "http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version = > "1.0"> > <xsl:template match = "ABC"> > <xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes"><!DOCTYPE > OrderProcessing></xsl:text> > <xsl:element name = "Order"> > <xsl:element name ="Info"> > <xsl:apply-templates mode = "Attribs" select = "/ABC/info"/> > </xsl:element> > </xsl:element> > </xsl:template> > ... > <xsl:template mode = "Attribs" match = "info"> > <xsl:element name = "PO_NUMBER"> > <xsl:value-of select="attr/atomicValue[../name='ponumber']"/> Yes, it makes sense that this element would not have a value in the output, because as you suspected, the contents of attr/name is not 'ponumber' but ' ponumber'. This can be cured with <xsl:value-of select="attr/atomicValue[normalize-space(../name)='ponumber']"/> > </xsl:element> > ... > </xsl:template> > ... > </xsl:transform> > > > About your query about xsl-output doctype-public, our source > xml has an > inline DTD.

Sounds like your output document has an inline DTD too, in which case never mind. Lars XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
