Re: Re:  Thought i knew this but i guess not
Thank you Wendell, i think i have my head around it now. I found some code and will also look at what you've suggested.

I know the test is kind of shaky, and will probably need something better. The filter value can be of a form filter="filter1,filter10, filter17, filter23" something like that, so i need to do a little more testing.

Thanks again!

You are almost there.

First, you want xsl:apply-templates, not xsl:value-of. 
xsl:apply-templates will continue template matching through the tree. 
xsl:value-of will write the string value of the element, without 
processing children with templates.

Second, don't forget to do the usual xsl:copy thing for the elements you 
don't want to filter out.

Then, I suggest you might invert your logic for clarity.

Something like this?


This, of course, easily reduces to an xsl:if.

If that doesn't do it, maybe making a minimal test sample for 
demonstration would help.

Finally, I note that your test for your filter is brittle. 
@filter='filter11' will pass. (And 'filter10' will pass for two 
reasons.) The best fix to this depends on how you are using @filter.
