RE: Retaining XML output
FAQ, > My XML looks like > <x> > <y y1="somexml"><![CDATA[<queries><abc>123</abc></queries>]]></y> > </x> > > and my xsl snippet is > <xsl:value-of select="y[@y1='somexml']"/> > > Now, when I run it through a transformation, I get an output > without the > markup: > <queries><abc>123</abc></queries> You didn't have markup in the first place, so you don't get markup in the output either. > I would like to retain the markup in the output > (<queries><abc>123</abc></queries>). > Is there any way to achieve this using a xalan/xerces parser. No, because "<queries>..." is not markup inside CDATA section, it's just text. If you want to output the text node in a CDATA section, use cdata-section-elements attribute in xsl:output with the value of the name of the element inside which the text appears, e.g. if the output element is "foo", the use <xsl:output cdata-section-elements="foo"/> But again, note that <foo><![CDATA[<queries><abc>123</abc></queries>]]></foo> and <foo><queries><abc>123</abc></queries></foo> are equal.
