I don't know, but your 'warning' named template references
$warning/level, and that element is not defined in your 'warning'
variable or parameter, so you won't always get what you want anyway.

Yeah, sometimes it won't exist. That's fine.Thanks though!

Also, I don't think that test="number($warning/level) = $warning/level"
gives you what you expect either. Are you trying to compare the
warning.asp node value to the passed value?

No, just making sure its a number.

Hey list,

Keep in mind, I'm open to the smallest suggestions on anything below,
even if unrelated.

Anyway, I have the following snippet:

<xsl:variable name="warning">
        <warning>New contacts may only be added to active
consumers.</warning> </xsl:variable> <xsl:call-template name="warning">
        <xsl:with-param name="warning" select="$warning" />
        <xsl:with-param name="level">3</xsl:with-param>

I don't like it. I'd rather do it in one fell swoop, a la:

<xsl:call-template name="warning">
        <xsl:with-param name="warning">
                <warning>New contacts may only be added to active
        <xsl:with-param name="level">3</xsl:with-param>

But my template complains: Reference to variable or parameter 'warning'
must evaluate to a node list.

Template below.
        <xsl:template name="warning">
                <xsl:param name="warning"
                <xsl:param name="level" >
                                <xsl:when test="number($warning/level) =
select="$warning/level" />
                <xsl:if test="$warning">
                        <span class="screen">
                                <fieldset class="warning{$level}">
select="." /></li>

Also, I'm all about syntax efficiency. Are there any other shortcuts I
could take besides the one I'm looking for?
