Data Islands don't have conditionals or anything. The only way you have chance achieving something with it would be by some complex JavaScript. Not to mention it works only with IE anyway.A lot easier way would be few conditionals in XSLT but then other problems for initiating it may arise.

Have a look at this, I was trying to do a similar thing:Dooberry's excellent adventureI found a way to show the current value using <xsl:if> as well.I would suggest before you go any further you read through the XSL tutorials because XML data islands are not very effective, HTML is not really designed to do much with XML (without a lot of scripting!!).Hope you find something useful.Dooberry
