    Chiming in here because I have a similar problem. My xml to be transformed is <cm:name>texthere</cm:name> I've added xmlns:cm="http://example.org" exactly as it is written to the stylesheet declarations as such <xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" ... xmlns:cm="http://example.org"> And my xslt code is <xsl:variable name="var" select="cm:name"/> "var" is returned blank and I'm really at an impasse as to how to access this data. damaq, you might find this helpful: http://w3schools.invisionzone.com/index.php?showtopic=48839&hl=namespace#entry270426
  2. Okay, I think I solved it myself after a lot of trial and error. This seems to have done the trick: <xsl:variable name="hostname" select="HostProperties/tag[@name='hostname']"/>
  3. Hi, So I'm hoping to get some pointers on identifying namespaces and data contained within them. I have the task of transforming some (to my mind at least) unusual xml and I've not been able to successfully navigate it. Here's an example of the xml: <Report><ReportHost name="SampleHostName"><HostProperties><tag name="End_Time">Fri Jul 30 16:14:56 2010</tag><tag name="mac-address">00:00:00:00:00:01</tag><tag name="os_name">Microsoft Windows</tag><tag name="hostname">TestHostname</tag><tag name="Start_Time">Fri Jul 30 16:13:51 2010</tag></HostProperties>...</ReportHost>...</Report> And here is relevant portion of the XSLT that I'm trying to use to assign "TestHostname" to an XSLT variable: <xsl:for-each select="Report/ReportHost"> <xsl:variable name="hostname" select="HostProperties/tag"/> Running this, the variable "hostname" is assigned all the information (Fri Jul 30 16:14:56 2010 00:00:00:00:00:01 Microsoft Windows TestHostname Fri Jul 30 16:13:51 2010). If I run it with the select expression "HostProperties/hostname" it returns nothing. How can I assign the xslt variable "hostname" the relevant data that is held in <tag name="hostname">TestHostname</tag> ? Unfortunately I haven't been able to find any information quite like this in any of the documentation or trainings I've seen.
