Re: problem with xsl:copy-of and counting lines
but your problem description is refering to the number of lines in a printed form of the document which has only a slight relationship to the number of lines in the source xml. The input sample in your original post looked basically like html plus some custom tags. I'll assume the elements work as they do in html, so that an element like <li>Was sagen die Blutzucker-Messwerte aus?</li> would produce multiple lines of output if the text was sufficiently long, even if it had no line breaks in the source, and conversely if the input was <li> Was sagen die Blutzucker-Messwerte aus? </li> the output would be the same, on one line, even though teh XML source was spread over three. I assume this makes a single row of a table, so one line of output even though the code discussed so far woul count it as 7 (unless you have specified xsl:strip-sapace in your stylesheet in which case the indentation nodes will be ignored and it would be counted as 0 as it doesn't contribute any #10 characters to the block. <tr> <tag>So</tag> <datum>13.06.07</datum> <uhrzeit>14:00 - 15:30 Uhr</uhrzeit> <kursnr>Kurs-Nr.: </kursnr> <nr>50</nr> <beitrag>10 Euro</beitrag> </tr> If the thing is being displayed as a table, the first number of interest is probably the number of rows, which is count(block/kursinfo/tr) I'd guess.
