Hi, (I usually delete posts with a subject such as "a quesion" or "I'm stuck" without reading them. The list guidelines also instruct to you to use descriptive subject headers.) > I am pretty new to xml and xsl. > > I have an xml file in the following format: > <ne_resp cmd="show port counters"> > <line>Rx 64b< <128b : 0 |TxSingleCollPkt: > 0</line> > <ne_resp> > > I want to ouput an xml by using XSLT. > > And this is my desired output: > <ne_resp cmd="show port counters"> > <row> > <col name="Rx 64b< <128b">0</col> > <col name="TxSingleCollPkt">0</col> > </row> > </ne_resp> > > Unfortunately, I got this error: > parser error : StartTag: invalid element name in > analyzing the xml file > due to '<' in "Rx 64b< <128b" > > How can I make the start tag '<', a literal character '<' so > that I may able > to acquire my desired output? This is not an XSLT question, but rather an XML one. LESS-THAN SIGN is a delimiter character in XML and needs to be escaped in places when it's interpreted as a delimiter, like in your example. Use < to escape it, or a character reference (can't remember the code point, I'm too old). Cheers, Jarno
