RE: testing for text in one of many elements

Do you know all the function names ("Funcion Uno") beforehand or do you have to get them from the source xml file? 2. What is the rule to go from Function names (possibly with spaces) to the .asp file name? Do yiou have to compute it, or are they already pre-ordained? If the latter, you could do a simple lookup table - there are several ways to set that up, all of them easy. Cheers, Tom P XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
