Re: attribute selection
<xsl:value-of select="/elem1/property[@name='name1']/@value"/> Jay Bryant Bryant Communication Services (presently consulting at Synergistic Solution Technologies) Michael Thomas <thomas@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> 04/07/2005 02:10 PM Please respond to xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx To xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx cc Subject attribute selection I have an xml fragment such as: <elem1> <property name="name1" value="value1" /> <property name="name2" value="value2" /> </elem1> ...with many such property elements inside the elem1 element. I want to print the value of the 'value' attribute for the property element that has a name of 'name1'. So far I've been doing it this way: <xsl:for-each select="./elem1/property[./@name='name1']"> <b><xsl:value-of select="@value"/></b> </xsl:for-each> But it seems like there should be a more concise way of doing this, especially since I know that my input document will only have one property element with a matching "@name='name1'" attribute. --Mike
