parent following sibling xslt
Tempore 14:33:33, die 08/11/2005 AD, hinc in xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx scripsit geoff hopkins <geoffhopkins123@xxxxxxxxx>:

 I understand this is a xslt forum but there does not
 seem to be any decent xpath places...
I need a xpath expression to be used with a for-each
 loop... context node is X.Parent select the next
 until it finds the next occurance of X.Parent or
 END-OF-DATA as the text value of the node

Keys are often used to achieve something like this:

<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="1.0">

<xsl:key name="children"
	match="node[not(.='END-OF-DATA' or .='X.Parent')]"

<xsl:output method="xml" indent="yes"/>

<xsl:template match="root">
	<xsl:apply-templates select="node[.='X.Parent']"/>

<xsl:template match="node">
<xsl:element name="{.}">
	<xsl:apply-templates select="key('children',generate-id())"/>


The output will be: <X.Parent> <Y.Child/> <Y.Child/> </X.Parent> <X.Parent> <Y.Child/> </X.Parent>
