RE: Newbie wants comments too . . .
Frank, If you need to get up to speed with XSLT 1.0, I *HIGHLY* recommend O'Reilly's "XSLT 1.0 Pocket Reference", by Evan Lenz. It's $10, readily available on the shelf at most Barnes & Noble stores, and is, in my opinion, the best quick reference yet written on XSLT 1.0. It only takes about three hours or so with that book and some good example cases to wrap your head around most basic XSLT 1.0. Grab that ASAP - if you're starting to work extensively with XSLT, that book will never leave your side. I require the developers around here to buy a copy for themselves before I'll spend any significant amount of time helping them debug their stylesheets. :) ~ Scott -----Original Message----- From: Frank Merrow [mailto:fmerrow@xxxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Wednesday, May 07, 2008 4:40 PM To: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: Re: Newbie wants comments too . . . >This isn't much different (and it should create the same output), >but you'll find this approach scales better to more complex sorts of problems. Thank you SO MUCH for the time you took to respond so completely! If was very helpful. I'm trying to get a job done without having to actually read and digest this 800 page XSLT book I have as my only learning tool. I converted to your example and it ran immediately and kept comments . . . THANK YOU. Frank
