xsl value of variable
Pieter, I actually do want to pass the *name* of a tag to the template -
then in the template I want to access the *value* (text) of the tag that
was passed in.

Hi Hardy,

You're using

<xsl:with-param name="mytag" select="'full_name'"/>

but I guess you want to use

<xsl:with-param name="mytag" select="full_name"/>

Here is a snippet of my call and template:


<xsl:call-template name="get_inactive">
	<xsl:with-param name="distno" select="district_no"/>
	<xsl:with-param name="disttype" select="district_type"/>
	<xsl:with-param name="mytag" select="'full_name'"/>
	<xsl:with-param name="legislators"

<xsl:template name="get_inactive">
	<xsl:param name="distno"/>
	<xsl:param name="disttype"/>
	<xsl:param name="mytag"/>
	<xsl:param name="legislators"/>

select="msxsl:node-set($legislators)/*[legislator_active = 0 and
= $distno and district_type = $disttype]">

                             <xsl:value-of select="$mytag" /> <<<=====
one ======



In "this one" in the template, $mytag contains the literal "full_name"
- what I want is the *text value* of the full_name tag, but this isn't
it for me.  How do I get that?
