Re: How to get the sibling node just before the contex
Hi, Your xml is not well-formed due to 2 reasons. 1. All elements in your XML must be a child of a root element 2. Th Text1 and Text2 elements do not have matching closing tags. Having said that, the following stylesheet should do what you want. <xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="1.0"> <xsl:output method="xml" indent="yes" /> <xsl:template match="/X"> <xsl:apply-templates select="C"/> </xsl:template> <xsl:template match="C"> <xsl:value-of select="preceding-sibling::B"/> </xsl:template> </xsl:stylesheet> And the input XML I used was <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <X> <A> <TEXT1> at1 </TEXT1> <TEXT2> at2 </TEXT2> </A> <B> <TEXT1> t1</TEXT1> <TEXT2>t2 </TEXT2> </B> <C> <TEXT1> ct1 </TEXT1> <TEXT2> ct2</TEXT2> </C> </X> Cheers, Omprakash.V "Jaime Stuardo" To: <xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> <jstuardo@sec cc: (bcc: omprakash.v/Polaris) urity.cl> Subject: How to get the sibling node just before the context node? 04/21/2005 04:26 AM Please respond to xsl-list For example, <A> <TEXT1> <TEXT2> </A> <B> <TEXT1> <TEXT2> </B> <C> <TEXT1> <TEXT2> </C> If context node is C, I want to get only B. I tried using preceding-sibling::TEXT1 but I always get TEXT1 of node A, but I want to get it of node B.
