RE: apply-template doesn't hit template
Well, An easier approach is to have a good XSLT tool .. That wont let you write wrong code at the first instance.. This is always a better approach.. I have seen many XSLT developers who fancy coding using notepad , textpad for some of their own known reasons.. While this may be ok to get a grip of the language syntax, you are more unlikely to make Syntax mistakes with a good tool. It is quite annoying sometimes to see basic syntax errors in the processor's error list :-) -----Original Message----- From: David.Pawson@xxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:David.Pawson@xxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: 14 September 2004 08:26 To: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: RE: apply-template doesn't hit template I've found one of the biggest advantages of Saxon is its ability to report errors that are easy to 'see'/interpret. It saves a lot of work. DaveP. > It of course worked just fine. For a day or two I've been trying all > different kinds of XPaths, I thought I've lost my mind..

But it shouldn't have needed eyes at all, any reasonable xslt system ought to have reported error on line .... illegal select attribute on xsl:template or some such error and stopped and produced no output. Did your system silently accept that and then produce bad output? David ____________________________________________________________ ____________ This e-mail has been scanned for all viruses by Star.
