Re: test if null
Hi, Try 1. <xsl:if test="not(NEWSFLASHAURL = '')"/> or 2. <xsl:if test="not(string-length(NEWSFLASHAURL) = 0)"/> or 3. <xsl:if test="not(count(*) = 0)"/> 1 and 2 check if the content of NEWSFLASHAURL is the zero-length string while 3 tests if NEWSFLASHAURL has no children. Hope this helps.
