I have question which must have been on this list before, but I can't
find the answer.
In my style sheet I make a selection of the elements and pass that to a
template. In that template I can reference this sequence as $seq.
Selecting from $seq appears to be not that easy, because I can't use
axes. Axes have a document scope whereas I want to do something within
If for example $seq contains elements a, b, c, b, e:
how do I select
- everything before the first b
- everything from the first b to the end
- the position of the first b?
As $seq[self::b]/preceding-sibling::* is not good because it possibly
selects element outside the sequence, but are preceding-siblings in the
Thanks in advance,
