xslt break a loop
<?xml version='1.0'?>
HTH, XSLT doesn't have anyway to break a loop, so little tedious.....

<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl='http://www.w3.org/XSL/Transform/1.0'>
<xsl:template match="TASKS" >
   <xsl:param name="var">
   <xsl:for-each select="TASK/DESCRIPTION" >
        <xsl:if test="not(string-length( text() )=0)">
   <xsl:if test="$var=1" >
      <p>Some Header Info</p>
   <xsl:apply-templates select="TASK" />

Suppose I have the following XML:

     <DESCRIPTION>Make sure it's clean</DESCRIPTION>

And the following XSLT template:

<xsl:template match="TASKS">
   <P>Some header info</P>
   <xsl:apply-templates select="TASK" />

I'd like to rewrite the template so that the header
is suppressed if none of the TASK elements have

<xsl:tempalte match="TASKS">
   <xsl:if at-at-least-one-TASK-has-a-non-empty-DESCRIPTION>
      <xsl:apply-templates select="TASK" />

Any ideas? I know how to count the DESCRIPTIONs, but not how
to count the non-empty ones.
