What I am doing for something similar is:

XML file:
<product num="US1234">

XSL file:
<A><xsl:attribute name="href">/details<xsl:value-of select="@class"/></xsl:attribute></A>

see how this works. I did not code this example in my stuff, but it may work. I did not need to have the directory portion. 

Another choice would be to create a variable and use that:
<xsl:variable name="prodnum" select="@num"/>
<A href="/details/$prodnum">...

Let me know how it works.

Subject:	Inserting into a href tag

I'm trying to insert a value from an XML file into an href tag, but it is
not working correctly.

This is the XML file:


This value will need to be used in many places, such as this inside my XSL

<A href="/details/{prodnum}">


<A href="/view={prodnum}">


<A href="/expand={prodnum}">

I'm get output that looks like this:

<A href="/details/%0A%20US1234%0A%20"}
<A href="/view=%0A%20US1234%0A%20"}
<A href="/expand=%0A%20US1234%0A%20"}

What am I doing wrong here?  I've tried references like {product/prodnum},
but that returns a blank.  Is there something outside of this code that I
need to declare?
