Hi Roman,


<xsl:variable name="someName" select="$your_xform_instance/*"/>

context, and this is why I can't specify the exact XPath expression to it.

Supposing that it is defined as a (single) child of your xsl:stylesheet, then the
above variable definition could be written more precisely as:

<xsl:variable name="someName" select="document('')/*/xform:instance/*"/>

Hi there!

Ok, my problem now is that I would like to take this structure between
the <instance>- Tags und store it in a variable within my stylesheet.
But I can't think of a way to give out the contained element-names. 
The content of the variable should at the end look like this: 

birthdate></data> }

I tried it with a simple <xsl:copy-of select="......"> but this command
just gives me the text-content back, which is in that case null.

Could you please help me??
