Re: value-of or apply-templates
<xsl:apply-templates /> or: <xsl:value-of select="."> when you get to the node nested at the lowest level and you simply want to get its content? if you know that you should probably use value-of as it's probably a fraction quicker, and it _definitely_ produces what you want (apply-templates will produce whatever the template for text nodes does which may or may not be the same as value-of. On the other hand, for document types that I control, whenever I've used value-of because I "know" I'm at a leaf we've later extended the document type to deal with something or other and allowed markup there so then I've had to go back and change to apply-templates. So, for fixed public things, docbook, xhtml, etc I'd use value-of but for more fluid things I'd use apply-templates. -- http://www.dcarlisle.demon.co.uk/matthew ________________________________________________________________________ This e-mail has been scanned for all viruses by Star Internet.
