Re: Enclosing sequence items in single quotes
After adding the appropriate namespace declaration, this template does the trick, thanks. <xsl:template match="/"> <xsl:variable name='pf-codes' select="position-translation/position/code[@pf='pf']" as="xs:string+"/> <xsl:value-of separator="," select="for $c in $pf-codes return concat('''', $c, '''')"/> </xsl:template> -- Charles Knell cknell@xxxxxxxxxx - email -----Original Message----- From: Andrew Welch <andrew.j.welch@xxxxxxxxx> Sent: Fri, 19 Oct 2007 16:18:38 +0100 To: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: Re: Re: Enclosing sequence items in single quotes On 19/10/2007, cknell@xxxxxxxxxx <cknell@xxxxxxxxxx> wrote: > I spoke too soon.
