Re: Replacing strings in XSL
That clears up the issue. I thought you might have a structure like <element> </element>, which would be a different problem. The following solutions work against this midget XML structure: <x> <y>one two three</y> </x> One way to do what you want to do in XSLT 1.0 is this: <xsl:template match="y"> <y> <xsl:call-template name="replaceSpace"> <xsl:with-param name="inString" select="."/> </xsl:call-template> </y> </xsl:template> <xsl:template name="replaceSpace"> <xsl:param name="inString"/> <xsl:choose> <xsl:when test="contains($inString, ' ')"> <xsl:value-of select="substring-before($inString, ' ')"/>  <xsl:call-template name="replaceSpace"> <xsl:with-param name="inString" select="substring-after($inString, ' ')"/> </xsl:call-template> </xsl:when> <xsl:otherwise> <xsl:value-of select="$inString"/> </xsl:otherwise> </xsl:choose> </xsl:template> One way to do it in XSL 2.0 is this: <xsl:template match="y"> <y><xsl:value-of select="replace(., ' ', ' ')"/></y> </xsl:template> (Thanks to Dr. Kay for pointing out the replace function earlier today.)
