Subject RE: problem with following-sibling::?
Date Tue, 11 Jan 2000 13:44:59 GMT

Hi Toby,

Thanks for the suggestion. The default install of Coccon 1.5 uses the XSL:P
processor from
instead of Xalan. As near as I can figure out, it doesn't handle Axes, as I got
the following to work:

          <xsl:apply-templates select="../node()[position()=1]" />

but the equivalent statement, without the abbreviated syntax, causes the process
 to fail at that line:

          <xsl:apply-templates select="../child::node()[position()=1]" />

My syntax is correct, right??

I tried downloading Xalan and running my xml & xsl through it, but it complains
about things that XSL:P seems to take in it's stride. It keeps giving me
messages like "problem at line x column y - null".  I will have to figure out
what I am doing wrong and then plug Xalan in to Cocoon.

Thanks & regards,
John Gray

I was playing around this weekend with axes, and got them to work AOK -
however I was merely playing with Xalan, as opposed to Cocoon, so maybe I
was doing something differently.

Have you tried just running a simple example through Xalan and checking that
your syntax and ideas are correct, before attempting to run it all the way
through Cocoon?
