Re:  matching elements of a list
Hi Rolf,

In XSLT 2.0 you can define a function to get the list of elements, see an example below:

<?xml version='1.0'?>
<xsl:transform version="2.0"
    <xsl:output method="text"/>

<xsl:function name="g:getList">
<xsl:param name="node"/>
<xsl:param name="root"/>
<xsl:sequence select="if ($node) then ($node, g:getList($root/ln[@s=$node]/@d, $root)) else ()"/>

    <xsl:template match="st">
        <xsl:value-of select="g:getList(@ix, /root)" separator="->"/>

try this stylesheet, i think this would work (if i guessed your requirements right).

<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="1.0">
<xsl:template match="/">
<xsl:apply-templates select="root/st"/>
<xsl:template match="st">
<xsl:value-of select="concat(@ix,':')"/>
<xsl:apply-templates select="following-sibling::ln[@s=current()/@ix]"/>
<xsl:template match="ln">
<xsl:value-of select="concat(' ', @d)"/>
<xsl:apply-templates select="following-sibling::ln[@s=current()/@d]"/>

do I have reached the limits of xpath?

if several linked lists are contained in one document how to match all
nodes belonging to a specific start node?

The following example may illustrate my question:

    <st ix="a"/>
    <st ix="b"/>
    <el ix="c"/>
    <el ix="d"/>
    <el ix="e"/>
    <el ix="f"/>
    <el ix="g"/>

    <ln s="a" d="g"/>
    <ln s="g" d="f"/>

    <ln s="b" d="e"/>
    <ln s="e" d="c"/>
    <ln s="c" d="d"/>

disired output:

a: g f
b: e c d

How to accomplish that by XSLT (2.0)?
Even your answer "I know for sure that there is not elegant way"
or "You got to extend the processor by some Java function"
would help.
