Re:  A problem with concat()
Hi Brandon,
thanks for the reply. I'm trying to process several hundred files in
one fell swoop. :)

Some of the elements look like this:
<mods:name type="personal" authority="LCNAF">
some are like this:
<mods:name type="personal">
and some fit this bill:


So I hoped that testing for "not(@attribute)" would help me parse the
element and get me by those occasions where I don't have an attribute
there at all. Is there a better way to handle this case? <- I'm sure
there is, but I don't know it.
