RE:  Isolate single result from sorted list
I think you need to copy all future programs to a node-set, then sort
that node-set and select the one in position 1.

Something like this?

<xsl:variable name="futureprograms" select="//programme[@start >
<xsl:for-each select="$futureprograms">
	<xsl:sort select="@start"/>
	<xsl:if test="position() = 1">
		<xsl:copy-of select="."/>

Subject:  Isolate single result from sorted list


I would like to refresh a web page based on a list of "program start
times" contained in XML format.  I can select and sort the start
times, but I am having trouble isolating the *next* start time.  In
other words, XSLT formats a list of results (as one would expect) but
I need to identify a single result.

My code can be viewed here:


The output of my code can be viewed here:


After scouring the web and searching the archives for this list, I
attempted many solutions but could not make any work---I am completely
stumped.  I will be eternally grateful if someone could suggest a
simple, straightforward solution.

Thanks in advance!
