Re: Conditionally use attribute sets?

Of course, it always adds one, but it's conditional. I figured the OP could get to doing it with xsl:if on his own. > >> Consider the following stylesheet > > But that stylesheet doesn't use attribute sets at all. > It writes out a result that happens to have an atribute called > xsl:use-attribute-sets but the attribute sets defined in the stylesheet > e are not used, are they?

Yes. I put them in so that what I was referring to would be defined, not to use them. I thought the OP wanted that rather than wanting them to be expanded. I assumed he was going to do a further transformation later in his process. Sorry about any confusion.
