Re: Identity Transform xml for variable
> So, in XSLT 2.0 do you get a usable node-set or a result tree > fragment? Neither. XPath2 loses both the node set datatype and the result tree fragment datatype. Both are replaced by sequnces (ie ordered finite lists) rather than the unordered node set type of Xpath 1,also Xpath2 sequences can contain values as well as nodes, so you can have a sequence (1,2,3) of three integers for example (with exactly that syntax). However the impotant thing here is that in 2.0 if you go <xsl:varable name="x"> <xsl:apply-templates/> </xsl:variable> then $x holds a sequence of one document node which is something to which you can apply a second set of templates. Thus the need to use a node-set() funtion is removed. David ________________________________________________________________________ This e-mail has been scanned for all viruses by Star.
