Re: capitalizing the first letter of a string
Thanks for answering me. I wanted to capitalize the first letter without extracting it. I was wondering it there's a shorter way than this long line : <xsl:value-of select="concat(translate(substring($name, 1,1),'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz', 'ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ'),substring($name,2,string-length($name)))"/> Thanks for all !! ----- Original Message ----- From: <cknell@xxxxxxxxxx> To: <xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Thursday, November 06, 2003 3:34 PM Subject: RE: capitalizing the first letter of a string > Suppose you have variable $name.
