Re: Flatten a sequence to a string in xslt 2.0
<xsl:variable name="foo" select="/root/node"/> I get a sequence of two nodes rather than the string value of the first node (as in xslt 1.0) You'd get two nodes in XSLT1 as well. > how do I get from the sequence to a string? it depends what string you want to get. string($foo) is one way, that will get "hello" alternatively you can use value of which can produce a string by concatenating space separated string values of each item: so "hello world" <xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="2.0" > <xsl:output method="xml" encoding="utf-8"/> <xsl:variable name="foo" select="/root/node"/> <xsl:template match="/"> [<xsl:copy-of select="string($foo)"/>] [<xsl:value-of select="$foo"/>] </xsl:template> </xsl:stylesheet> $ saxon7 string.xml string.xsl <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> [hello] [hello world] David -- http://www.dcarlisle.demon.co.uk/matthew ________________________________________________________________________ This e-mail has been scanned for all viruses by Star Internet.
