Subject Re: Betwixt: numbered tags for an array
Date Wed, 05 Jul 2006 07:29:33 GMT
Hi mike,
thanks for your mail!
and excuse me for the delay in my response.
your explanation is very complete, but i have other 2 question for you:

1.
if i use your third solution and i have 3 name, i have this xml:
<person>
    <name order="1">Aname</name>
    <name order="2">Bname</name>
    <name order="3">Cname</name>
</person>
how can i get a specific name, for example the second name('Bname')?
In your example you write:
    To get order:  /person/name/@order
    To get name: /person/name
but this not find a specific name.
But i have some problem in xsl-fo because i have 3 separate field in my pdf 
output, where i put the first, the second and the third name.

2.
with betwixt how can i write the attribute order in an element: for example 
<name order="1">

thanks and ciao
Stefano
