Re: testing for a missing attribute

In XSLT 2 the expression (x,y) will take the first member of the sequence of items addressed by "x" and then "y". A sequence does not contain any empty sets, so if "x" does not address anything then "y" is the first member of the sequence.
I suppose if there had been a DTD to validate against I could have checked for the value directly.
No, because the document model cannot be inspected by an XSLT stylesheet.
I hope this helps.
