RE: Changing the Attibute Value
First of all thank you, for your valuable answer and time For the first query I found the answer from your query... But for the second I am not happy with the answer you provided... I feel the thing I have asked is not XSL basics. Please don't discriminate people here. Hope many comes to here getting other peoples valuable help. Keep in mind no one knows everything. I have expertise in so many other areas than XSLT, I am bit new to this world. Rather than learning it from kinder garden I came here to get an expert answer for my question (I hope you all agree as SW people we have very limited time). That is what this kind of forums does. I too involved in so many forms related to my field and giving answers to the people who ever, asked for NO COST. (People are born to help others) Hope all the above are not related to XSL, Sorry guys... I am really not happy the way "Abel" treat the people who comes here... - Regards - Buddhi - -----Original Message----- From: Abel Braaksma [mailto:abel.online@xxxxxxxxx] Sent: Tuesday, July 22, 2008 10:16 AM To: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: Re: Changing the Attibute Value Buddhi D.

You just have multiple matches and the processor will decide which one matches your input best. But you can do a lot inside it, using xsl:for-each, xsl:copy-of, xsl:value-of, xsl:choose etc. Lookup any manual to find out what instructions are valid. At www.w3schools.org there's a basic tutorial on XSLT. Cheers, -- Abel --
