Dear All

I'm having a problem with the matches() function, probably due to misreading the literature. I'm using Saxon.NET version 8.
The following stylesheet needs only a dummy XML input. I was expecting the case-insensitive match to work.

<xsl:stylesheet version="2.0"
<xsl:template match="/">
<h3>String handling</h3>
<xsl:variable name="sentence" select="'I love Paris in the spring'"/>
Case-sensitive match against 'paris': <xsl:value-of select="matches($sentence, 'paris')"/><br/>
Case-insensitive match against 'paris': <xsl:value-of select="matches($sentence, 'paris', 'i')"/>

I get false against both matches.

Thanks for your help
