RE: Converting CSV to XML without hardcoding schema d
Thanks Michael for the info. I spent a lot of time trying different things to get item-at() to work. It seems to be still present in the xquery spec - but I was not able to refer it from that namespace and get it to work in my xsl - is that even possible?
