At 10:38 29/11/00 +0000, you wrote:
  The part of the code is the following :

         count="*[*/caption and name(*)=$ln_subframe]"
         format="1 "/>

that's legal, but rather strange.

* selects all the children of the current node.
name() given a node set gives the name of the first node in the node
set in document order.

so ln_subframe is the name of the first child.

Sorry, I forgot to tell you : there is only one child for the frame element.



selects all previous nodes in the document and  filters so you
count only those nodes that have a grandchild called caption,
and a first child which has the same name as the first child
of the current node (but this need not be the parent of the caption


See previous remark.

I know what it does, I wrote it...

What I want to know is if it is legal, and in that case, does anyone use iXSLT in a project, and is it conformant.
