Anybody know what's the other way around this ? You don't need a variable at all. Just code the xsl:value-of within each when/otherwise branch. Variables in functional languages such as XSLT are like variables in mathmatices. They are declarations of values, not assignments. Just as in mathmatics: x = x + 1 for instance, makes no sense - rather you would say y = x + 1. -- Colin Paul Adams Preston Lancashire
