Re: determining node position by the content of a tex
If I understand you correctly you don't need the current position, you just need the preceding element, which is preceding-sibling::* To look up the replacement word you would be best to use a key (which is desined for exctly this use) <xsl:key name="en2de" match="wort[@xml:lang='de']"use="../wort[@xml:lang='en']"/> template that replaces any english text that has a German dranslation <xsl:template match="text()"> <xsl:variable name="t" select="."/> <xsl:for-each select="document('dict.xml')"> <xsl:choose> <xsl:when test="key('en2de',$t) <xsl:value-of select="key('en2de',$t)"/> </xsl:when> <xsl:otherwise> <xsl:value-of select="$t"/> </xsl:otherwise> </xsl:choose> </xsl:template> David ________________________________________________________________________ This e-mail has been scanned for all viruses by Star.
