Re: How to select for ' in XPATH?
> Is there an xpath expression for matching a string containing N ' > and N " characters alternating without the need to have a concat > of 2*N parameters? an xpath2 string literal can contain both ' and " but while an xpath1 string value can contain both types of quote, an xpath1 string literal can only contain one type of quote, the other needed to surround the literal value. So you need to do something, but it doesn't have to be a big concat if you don't like that, for example translate('aaaaaaaaaa""""""""""','a',"'") is an xpath1 expression that produces a string of 10 ' followed by 10 " In xpath2 it could be written as '''''''''''''''''''''""""""""""' which might, or might not, be clearer, depending on your eyesight:-) David ________________________________________________________________________ The Numerical Algorithms Group Ltd is a company registered in England and Wales with company number 1249803.
