Choose conditional by tag value
Dear XSL list: I am new to this, and I've tried to figure out why this isn't working using books and websites without any success. Please share your insight with me! I am styling XML that is produced by third party software. It gives a list of events, and if there aren't any events, it gives a message in the <title> tag that reads No Events Currently Scheduled. I want that to look different than days with actual events. So: <xsl:template match="/"> <xsl:choose> <xsl:when test="[title='No Events Currently Scheduled']"> <p>No events scheduled</p> </xsl:when> <xsl:otherwise> <xsl:for-each select="event/item"> <div class="xmlitem"> <h3> <span class="xmlfeedtitle"> <a> <xsl:attribute name="href"> <xsl:value-of select="link" /> </xsl:attribute> <xsl:value-of select="title" disable-output-escaping="yes"></xsl:value-of></a> </span> </h3> <p class="xmlitemdate"> <xsl:value-of select="time"></xsl:value-of> at <span class="xmlfeedlocation"> <xsl:value-of select="library"></xsl:value-of> </span> </p> </div> </xsl:for-each> </xsl:otherwise> </xsl:choose> </xsl:template> </xsl:stylesheet> And I have two XML samples to work with: No events: <event> <item> <title>No Events Currently Scheduled</title> <date/> <time/> <description/> <location/> <library/> <link/> </item> </event> Events: <item> <title>Basic PC (Personal Computers)</title> <date>Tuesday August 7th, 2007</date> <time>09:00 AM</time> <description>Want to learn how to use personal computer?

I thought it was the spaces, but it's a string... right? Thank you for your help. -- In peace, Amy M. Drayer Web Interface Designer amostrom@xxxxxxxxx http://www.puzumaki.com
