Re: Re: Thought i knew this but i guess not
Thank you Wendell, i think i have my head around it now. I found some code and will also look at what you've suggested. I know the test is kind of shaky, and will probably need something better. The filter value can be of a form filter="filter1,filter10, filter17, filter23" something like that, so i need to do a little more testing. Thanks again!

First, you want xsl:apply-templates, not xsl:value-of. xsl:apply-templates will continue template matching through the tree. xsl:value-of will write the string value of the element, without processing children with templates. Second, don't forget to do the usual xsl:copy thing for the elements you don't want to filter out. Then, I suggest you might invert your logic for clarity. Something like this? This, of course, easily reduces to an xsl:if. If that doesn't do it, maybe making a minimal test sample for demonstration would help. Finally, I note that your test for your filter is brittle. @filter='filter11' will pass. (And 'filter10' will pass for two reasons.) The best fix to this depends on how you are using @filter.
