I want to test a attribute which has a number value, though numbers are in string forms, if one of the bit of number is set.For example,

 <xsl:if test="bit 7 of Flags is 1">

I find it seems impossbile to use XLST to implement this function.
Is anybody has some magic soluction?

The XPath 1.0 data model only maintains strings for attribute values.

Any testing you need to do will have to treat the attribute as a string value, and decode what you want from that string, which includes converting the string to a number if you need to.

I'm not at all sure what you are asking for when you ask about a bit being set ... I associate that with bits of a byte or word expressed typically in decimal or hex.

I hope this helps.
