Re: Convert a node-set to a string
Is it possible to get a string from a node-set in XSLT 1.1?XSLT 1.1 was a working draft issued around 2001 and withdrawn soon after. Unfortunately during that short period the second edition of my book was published, and many people are still using it, so I suspect that's where you got the name from. But asking a question about a short-lived working draft from 10 years ago isn't helpful.
I suspect that the string you want is one that contains lexical XML markup. For that you need a serialize() function. It's available as an extension in some products, and there are implementations in pure XSLT, but it's not part of the standard library.
