RE: Nodesets handling (getting subsets)
Hi Marco, If I am understanding you correctly then you should be able to use the total count of the elements that match 'office:document-content/office:body/draw:page' of your source document as your base and then exclude any 'slide' elements whose number attribute is greater than this value. The most efficient way of doing this is to first create a variable that contains the count from your source document: <xsl:variable name="pageCount" select="count(document('#content.xml')/office:document-content/office:bo dy/draw:page)"/> And then compare that number with the number attribute of each slide element from your original variable to get the resulting result tree fragment. <xsl:variable name="resultTreeFragment" select="$selected-slides[not(@number > $pageCount)]"/> Let me know if I understand your dilemma accurately and if the above was helpful.
