function of web server
Hi Maria,

I tried two different versions of the document() function to format dates.
Both versions worked on my local hard drive but not on the web server. I
know that I have a more recent version of Xalan on my hard drive, but I am
wondering if something else is causing the problem.
This version of the template, in which the monthnames were stored in
separate namespace, caused the stylesheet to stop transforming.
<fr:month-names>
<fr:month num="01">jan</fr:month>
<fr:month num="02">f&#233;v</fr:month>
<fr:month num="03">mar</fr:month>
</fr:month-names>
<xsl:template name="FrenchMonth">
<xsl:value-of
select="document('')/*/fr:month-names/fr:month[@num=$month]"/>
</xsl:template>

I assume you are being brief here, but just to be sure: where do you define the variable month?


This version of the template, in which the monthnames were stored in an
external XML file, returned a null value.
<MonthNames>
<French>
<Name num="01">jan</Name>
<Name num="02">f&#233;v</Name>
<Name num="03">mar</Name>
</French>
</MonthNames>
<xsl:variable name="FrenchMonth"
select="document('month_names.xml')/MonthNames/French"/>
<xsl:template name="FrenchMonth">
<xsl:value-of select="$FrenchMonth/Name[@num=$month]"/>
</xsl:template>

I think you can better add a namespace to the external file as well.


For the remainder, I would say that things depend on how you configured your web server and how you execute the stylesheet. Do you execute them server-side?

HTH,
Geert
