Re: More than one parameter for stylesheet
The stylesheet is here: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"> <xsl:template match="/"> <bookshelf> <xsl:apply-templates select="//category[@categoryid='CAT1']"/> </bookshelf> </xsl:template> <xsl:template match="category[@categoryid='FTUKSDIV3']"> <xsl:copy-of select="../../*"/> </xsl:template> </xsl:stylesheet> Is that really your stylesheet (with different categoryid)? assuming you don't have nested categories, It seems very strange as it is written as the second template woul dbever be applied. If you had <xsl:template match="category[@categoryid='CAT1']"> It would be applied but there is no need to go all teh way down and then come back up. Assuming that you did intend to have the same cataegory, apparently want to copy all the children of the grandparent of this category, so you don't want to apply templates at all, just: <xsl:param name="cat" select="'CAT1'"/> <xsl:template match="/"> <bookshelf> <xsl:copy-of select="//*[*/category[@categoryid=$cat]/*"/> </bookshelf> </xsl:template> although if you know how deep you need to go replacing //* by /a/b/c is likely to be a big improvement. Having the parameter in a select rather than a match is good (because it's illegal to have parameters in a match, although i understand xalan doesn't enforce that) then you can set the param cat to any string on the command line (the -PARAM flag for xalan) David ________________________________________________________________________ This e-mail has been scanned for all viruses by Star.
