Rob,

Since even David sleeps sometimes (though when, I don't know)

Hi David,

the rtf shown was indeed just an illustration, but can be very big.

Do you know where to get the exslt node-set extension? It is not in the
source-code provided by exslt.org (though it is said on the website).
Others have found this out too.

It comes built in in a number of different engines, as documented on the site. It's one of the commonest EXSLT extension functions out there, and comes out of the box in Saxon, Xalan, 4Suite, libxslt and who knows what else.


EXSLT distributes no code for this since it has to be implemented in the native language of the processor, not in conformant XSLT. This is true of a number of different EXSLT specifications. For example, since XSLT 1.0 specifies no function to get today's date, an implementation of date:date() has to call a routine available on the platform; there is no way a stylesheet could divine today's date by itself.

The thing to do is just try it, following the directions (usual methods) for binding the namespace, etc. Which engine are you using?

If your engine doesn't support it it might have an equivalent in its own namespace, which you can research.

Good luck,
Wendell
