Re: creating top-level elements from within child ele

I thought I'd replied... > I wanted to know if its possible to create a new element say 'A2' from > within the <xsl:apply-template> of 'A1' such that 'A2' is the immediate > child of element 'A' and not 'A1'. the phrase <xsl:apply-template> of 'A1' isn't defined anywhere and I could make two guess what you mean by it, and depending which guess I make, the answer would be yes or no. templates are not "owned" by elements in the result tree they are distinguished by being matched to elements in the input. They then generate a fragment of the output. Clearly a single template can generate A1 and A2 as siblings rather than A2 being a child of A1. You just make them siblings rather than a child in the output. you say and not the default <A> <A1> <A2/> </A1> </A> But that is not the default. the default behaviour just gives you the character content and no elements at all in the result tree. You only have A2 as a child of A1 as that's the way you have it in your stylesheet 9as I said in my first reply) David ________________________________________________________________________ This e-mail has been scanned for all viruses by Star.
