RE: Calling templates based on node contents
I don't know how conformant MSXSL and .NET XSLT processing is in comparision to other processors? But no errors with match="." here... -----Original Message----- From: Wendell Piez [mailto:wapiez@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: 18 August 2004 18:03 To: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: Re: Calling templates based on node contents At 08:06 AM 8/18/2004, David wrote: > <xsl:template match="." >is _very_ strange construct it matches any node whatsoever, so really >disables the entire template matching process (which is why you were >having difficulties I expect) It's not even legal, is it? Aren't axes apart from child:: and attribute:: illegal in patterns? "A location path pattern is a location path whose steps all use only the child or attribute axes" [XSLT 5.2]. With a sort of quasi-exception made for the '//' operator. Given that (as surely every XSLT programmer learned in XSLT school) "." is short for "self::node()", I should think this match would give you an error in a conformant processor.
