Re: OR statement
I've tried a couple of approaches: <xsl:if test="(name() = pubdate or dc:date)">
The above or statement is broken down into operands as follows:
name() = pubdate
which checks to see if the name of the current node is equal to the text of the pubdate child of the current node (which you don't want) and
which is testing for any dc:date children (which you don't want).
You probably wanted to quote the names and re-use the name() function, but that is not the safest way to do the test you want.
If you want to check "am I a pubdate element or am I a dc:date element" for the current node, then the safest test you want is:
test="self::pubdate or self::dc:date"
test="self::pubdate | self::dc:date"
where "|" is "union" not "or".
The only safe use of the name() function is to get the name of the current element for display purposes ... because using it for node checking is not namespace-safe.
I hope this helps.
