  1. I'm running an XSLT against a 3rd party XML file that has element names that contain colons, i.e. <prefix:name>. Anyway if I rename the element to <prefixname> everything works as expected, but I get nothing if I try <xsl:value-of select="prefix:name"/> - a big blank where that info should be. I know it's recommended that you don't use element names with colons, but I can't do anything about this and I can't go through all their files to rename these elements. BUT, 1. it's only a recommendation, so shouldn't I get something? and 2. is there some way around this? thanks for
  2. Yes. I want to let them just pick up the relevant bits when they do a copy/paste rather than everything (like the prompts).
  3. In our doco we display lots of shell commands for users to cut and paste into a terminal, but we also need to display the command as it would appear in a terminal, ie with the actual shell prompt. how can I still display the command realistically in the doco, but limit the copy/paste operation to just pick up the command and not the prompts - this is an issue especially on multi-line commands. e.g.: display this in doco MyTerm >> do something MyTerm >> do something else but let the user copy/paste just the stuff after "MyTerm >>"
  4. OK, I now have a fully functioning XSLT that transforms the 1st lot of XML into strings of plain text. Does anyone know how I can now transform that plain text into pretty XML (for inclusion into the output PDF)?
  5. Hi, apologies for the ignorance, but I am pretty new to this. So 1. what does the above mean, and 2. how? PS. I can currently do the test: <xsl:template match="foobar"> <xsl:choose> <xsl:when attribute="@attr='true'"> <xsl:call-template name="this_version" /> </xsl:when> <xsl:otherwise> <xsl:call-template name="other_version" /> </xsl:otherwise> </xsl:choose> </xsl:template> My problem is instead of having the call here, I n
  6. For historical reasons we have program specs using one lot of XML tags that need to be transformed into a different set of tags for inclusion in our documentation. I could hand code each, but some are very large and they will change over time (updates, etc). I need to create an XSLT file that tests elements and their attributes to determine how to display them in the documentation. How can I test and then output the test result to a new template which I can then call ? I need these to be separate as each program spec will be formatted slightly differently. Is this possible or is there a bette
