Re: Selecting a Element by ID
> > <xsl:copy-of (or apply-templates, depending on what you want) > select="/article/answer[@ref=current()/@id]"/> That works. I tried /article/answer[@ref=self::node()/@id] and also /article/answer[@ref=@id] Both didn't work. inside the  the current bode is the answer element (that's why @ref finds the ref attribute of answer) but that means that self::node() is also the answer element so self::node()/@id and @id are both syntactically correct but are comparing the ref attribute with an id attribute on the same element the id attribute isn't there but that's OK it will compare as "" as usual in xpath. current() is the node current at the _start_ of the xpath so that gets you back to the question node.
