compare node attributes xsl
Hi Michael,

Thanks a lot.

Sorry if i was not able to explain my problem clearly.
I have asked about , what was your second interpretation. My problem was that 
only to get the value of the attributes of some node (A) by comparing it with 
other node's attribute name. And this other node (A (same name i.e. Reference 
node)) is the node having maximum attributes. So i was trying to compare the 
names of the  attributes of these nodes and if names are same then outputting 
the value otherwise something else.

Thanks a lot. Finally i move one step further in achieving my final output 
which i described in the thread "Column Header and Column Data".

I am grateful to you.

Let me try to understand. You have selected an element which I will call

Your first statement of the requirement is:

> I want to get data for all the nodes with the same
> name but having either less or same no. of attributes as this node

That sounds to me like:

//*[name() = name($E) and count(@*) &lt;= count($E/@*)]

But of course the second part of the test is redundant if $E is the
element with the greatest number of attributes.

Your restatement of the requirement is completely different:

> I want to compare
> the names of the attribute with the attribute names of the
> reference node and
> if they are same then outputting the value for that attribute
> otherwise outputting some other text (,or any kind of seperator).

This sounds to me like:

<xsl:for-each select="@*">
<xsl:when test="$E/@*[name()=name(current())]">
<xsl:value-of select="."/>

With two such different statements of the requirement, it's hard to be
sure that I have understood either of them properly.
