Re: Using a sequence of years to select documents to
I have a working solution, but I don't think it makes good use of the language.
Correct ... the context item for the for-each is a number, it is not a document node, so *any* XPath location path address of nodes is going to fail because it doesn't know which document tree of nodes you want to look in.
I was able to get the following to work, basically hand-coding one row for each of the year values.
Indeed: put your document nodes into a variable and then index off of the variable when your context node is a number:
<xsl:variable name="docs" select="documents/document"/> <xsl:for-each select="1842 to 1862"> <tr><td><xsl:value-of select="."/></td> <td> <xsl:apply-templates select="$docs[year = . and contains(title, 'Selectmen')"/> </td> <td> <xsl:apply-templates select="$docs[year = . and contains(title, 'School')"/> </td> </tr> </xsl:for-each>
I hope this helps.
