Re: Getting the current node, in a different document

document select current node
David,

Is there anything besides their structure that you can hang onto, such as equivalent id values on corresponding nodes? If so, this is much easier.

If not, but their structure really is identical, then corresponding nodes in both trees will have the same number of preceding elements, the same number of ancestors, the same number of preceding sibling elements etc.

Is that enough of a hint?

Cheers,
Wendell

Hello,

I have two different documents, file1.xml and file2.xml, with similar
structure but different leaf nodes. I would like to do something like:

<xsl:for-each select="*[type='bar']">
   value 1: <xsl:value-of select="id">
   value 2: <xsl:value-of
select="document('file2.xml')/$current_xpath_in_file1/description">
</xsl:for-each>

But that is obviously not a valid xpath! How could a acheive the same
result using actualt xslt?

Best Regards,
