Re: Count a substring of an attribute in childnodes
sum() takes a set of nodes, each of which has to have a numeric value, then sums them, returning the total: I tried select="sum(number( There the argument to sum() isn't a set of anything, it's a single number (as returned by number() ) so you get an error and processing stops, but even if that didn't error the only possible interpretation for a sum of one number would be to return that number unchanged, so you still wouldn't get a total. > So it will be the recursive template. if you allow yourself an xx:node-set extension then the alternative would be to do one pass that removes the"*" then you could just use select="sum(colspec/@colwidth) to get the total.
