Re: Problems matching end-of-line character
> Why is the end-of-line in $var1 not visible? because you are searching for a space not a newline. <xsl:if test="contains(exsl-common:node-set($var1)/a/text(),'&xa;')"> does what you want. Most weeks someone on this list calls a numeric character reference an entity reference, and I moan that it isn't an entity reference. This is one of those times that makes a difference. Newlines in attribute values are normalised to space by an xml parser before xlslt starts, character references hide the newline so it doesn't get normalised, but entity expansion happens before normalisation, so your EOL expands tp a newline character (not a character reference) and then gets normalised to a space. So by the time xslt starts the second argument to your contains() function is a space.
