xsl if there is
Try something like:

 <xsl:if test="advertisement/source/base[. = 'something here']">

The latest XSLT spec describes several string operations which will help
searching for text patterns, but I don't know if they are widely supported -
as well as they don't have case insensitive versions.
http://www.w3.org/TR/WD-xslt#strings

For example, some operations are: starts-with, contains, substring-before,
substring-after

Hi,

	I have the following:
		<base version=""></base>

	When I do the following test:
		<xsl:if test="advertisement/source/base">
			<pickup-ref>
				<publication-ad-id>
					<xsl:apply-templates
select="advertisement/source/base"/>
				</publication-ad-id>	
			</pickup-ref>
		</xsl:if>	

	I get the value of base.

	What I actualy want to test is if base has any text like 
<base version="">something here</base>. How can I do that?

TIA,
