Hi David,Hmmm... I'm not sure I understand. The way I interpreted what David Carlisle had stated was that, for example, if @bar had the value of "5" that you could use then use the number function to tell the XSLT processor to use the literal number value of @bar to determine the position of an element in relation to the document order of an element in relation to its siblings. Is that how it is or did I misinterpret what David was saying?
Ah yes, very good advice. In fact I have found that the only time I even use named templates anymore is for recursively seeking out particular content within a string and processing it further or as a way to specify the number of times the named template should be called and the instruction set processed before moving forward. And even then I try to make minimal use of this type of processing for the simple fact that if used in the wrong situation you can find yourself spending a lot of CPU cycles and bottleneck an entire application because of it.
That would be great! I know that we would all appreciate any further insight you have on particular topics. We are going to use Dr. Kay's XSLT and XPath (1.0 and 2.0) Programmer References as a way of further referencing a topic. But to have your insight to further understand a topic of interest would be invaluable and an outstanding asset to the project.
Great, I will leave it as is then.
Thanks again Jeni! I've added a couple of entries on the site today, one which is specific to copyrights and the policy I will be implementing when it comes to anything that could be construed as a copyright infringement. If you have a chance to take a look at the policy and have anything additional you would like for me to consider, please let me know. The last thing I want to have happen is to infringe upon copyrights and will be making a specific effort to not use the literal text from the book beyond simple quotes and, of course, all of these will be properly marked and attributed. I will be asking for those who make comments to follow these same guidelines and I will be monitoring conformance, deleting anything that could even possibly be considered an infringement. If at anytime you see anything on the site that I have missed that you or APress feel a bit uneasy about please let me know and I will make sure it is taken off the site immediatelly!
