RE: Newbie Question: Creating Error Description from
It would be more useful to tell us what you tried, then we could see where you went wrong. But you can do it like this: <xsl:template match="header"> <xsl:copy-of select="*[child::node()]" <xsl:if test="*[not(child::node()]"> <errorDescription> <xsl:text>Invalid elements:</xsl:text> <xsl:value-of select="*[not(child::node())]/name()" separator=", "/> </errorDescription> </xsl:if> </xsl:template> That's XSLT 2.0. If you're using 1.0, change the value-of line to <xsl:for-each select="*[not(child::node())]"> <xsl:value-of select="name()"/> <xsl:if test="position()!=last()">, </xsl:if> </xsl:for-each> Michael Kay http://www.saxonica.com/ > -----Original Message----- > From: Badari [mailto:badbadri@xxxxxxxxx] > Sent: 13 October 2006 15:21 > To: XSL List > Subject: Newbie Question: Creating Error Description > from Invalid Input > > I am a newbie to XSL and am hoping that somebody can help me > with the following scenario.
