RE: Can i assign value to a variable and used it in d

Firstly, it can only work if $name is a global variable, which doesn't match your description. Secondly, $value looks at first sight like an XPath variable reference, but it is actually just a string, because you have put it in quotes. Thirdly, you are declaring a variable bordervalue which is never referenced, and can never be referenced, because it goes immediately out of scope. Fourthly, if this template only does anything when the context node is a table element, why haven't you made it a match="table" template rule? > > Actually i am used this template for processing inline > style.(above is a > part of that). > name variable contains the attribute name present in style > attribute.My aim > is to > check whether the name is border,then i store it value to > some variable.I > want to use > this variable in some other templates. The scoping rules for variables mean you can't do that (just like most other languages). You need to declare the variable inline, you can't call a template to do it. You can then pass its value to other templates as a parameter. Michael Kay http://www.saxonica.com/
