How to approach the list
> Well in putting together a small example for you it, > of course, worked perfectly. Interesting how often that happens. When I first started hanging around the list, Wendell Piez pointed out that the list's old-timers often ask people to post these small example problems partly because people often solve their own problems in the course of creating the small examples. Also, when the problem persists, a small but complete example of the XML source, the XSL, and the desired output really do a much better job of expressing the problem. I've observed that the folks on the list are much more helpful if you approach problems this way. In addition to providing the information they need if they are going to help, presenting problems this way lets them know that you understand the culture of the list and that you value their time. So, presenting a small but complete example of your problem when you ask your question has got to be one of the best ways to ask the list for help. So much for my shot at passing on Wendell's Wisdom (TM ;-). Jay Bryant Bryant Communication Services (presently consulting at Synergistic Solution Technologies)
