N TSubject: Help with retrieving inner node text
Author: N T
Date: 08 Sep 2005 02:29 PM
Hello, I am trying to write an XSL for the following XML data:

<NEWS>
<ITEM id="1">
<BODY>
<SECTION TYPE="Content">
<PARA>Some text content <innernode att="ABC"/> Some more text</PARA>
<PARA>Some text content. No innernode. Some more text</PARA>
</SECTION>
</BODY>
</ITEM>
<ITEM id="2">
<BODY>
<SECTION TYPE="Content">
<PARA>Some text content Some more text <innernode att="XYZ"/> other text</PARA>
<PARA>Some text content. No innernode. <innernode2/> Some more text</PARA>
</SECTION>
</BODY>
</ITEM>
</NEWS>

Basically, I need to display PARA text as is, but need to replace innernode based on the attribute att with some text. Example of innernode being a anchor tag with href as attribute and I need to replace that with a regular "a" tag. I need to also delete innernode2 from displaying.

Also, I had to jump through hoops in the XSL to get to the ITEM that needs to be displayed. The id of the item is passed as a param and need to display the article based on that.

Here's what I came up with so far, but isn't working:
1) It isn't replacing the innernode tag in-line.
2) There must be a better way to do this like calling apply-templates and replacing innernode and eliminating innernode2. I am not able to come up with it though.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
<xsl:output method="html"/>
<xsl:param name="articlekey">1</xsl:param>
<xsl:variable name="article" select="/NEWS/ITEM[@id=$articlekey]"/>

<xsl:template match="/">
<xsl:if test="$article/@id = $articlekey">
<table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%">

<xsl:call-template name="articleBody"/>

</table>
</xsl:if>
</xsl:template>

<xsl:template name="articleBody" match="/NEWS/ITEM/BODY">
<tr><td width="100%">

<xsl:for-each select="$article/BODY/SECTION[@TYPE='Content']/PARA">
<xsl:value-of select="."/><hr/>
<xsl:for-each select="./innernode">
(<xsl:value-of select="./@att"/>)
</xsl:for-each>
</xsl:for-each>
</td></tr>

</xsl:template>

Sorry for the delay; this should do what you want.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
<xsl:output method="xml" encoding="US-ASCII" indent="yes"/>
<xsl:param name="article" select="'1'"/>
<xsl:template match="/">
<xsl:apply-templates select="NEWS/ITEM[@id = $article]"/>
</xsl:template>
<xsl:template match="node()">
<xsl:element name="{local-name(.)}">
<xsl:copy-of select="@*"/>
<xsl:apply-templates select="child::*"/>
</xsl:element>
</xsl:template>
<xsl:template match="innernode">
<xsl:if test="@att = 'ABC'">
<new-abc-node/>
</xsl:if>
<xsl:if test="@att = 'XYZ'">
<new-xyz-node/>
</xsl:if>
</xsl:template>
<xsl:template match="innernode2"/>
</xsl:stylesheet>

N TSubject: Help with retrieving inner node text

Thanks a lot Tony. This does get me in the right direction. However, I have a small problem.
The following code:
<xsl:template match="node()">
<xsl:element name="{local-name(.)}">
<xsl:copy-of select="@*"/>
<xsl:apply-templates select="child::*"/>
</xsl:element>
</xsl:template>
<xsl:template match="innernode">
<xsl:if test="@att = 'ABC'">
<new-abc-node/>
</xsl:if>
<xsl:if test="@att = 'XYZ'">
<new-xyz-node/>
</xsl:if>
</xsl:template>

does not work as I expect. I mean, for the following PARA tag,
<PARA>Some text content <innernode att="ABC"/> Some more text</PARA>,
it prints
<PARA>Para 1 Some text content Some more text
<new-abc-node/>
</PARA>

But I need the text to be inline, meaning the new-abc-node needs to be positioned between the 2 text nodes. This is what I expect
<PARA>Para 1 Some text content <new-abc-node/> Some more text
</PARA>

Any help will be appreciated.
thanks.
