Spy's not the issue. It's more likely MSXML. You may have better luck
configuring SPY to run Xalan or Saxon as its xslt processor.

My version of XML-spy uses MSXML3 parser (and a BIG list of others), so
can't see why yours wouldn't work for you?

Only thing to note is that you can't embed <br> tags outside of your

	<tr><td><xsl:value-of select="w:city"/></td>
	<td><xsl:value-of select="w:hi_temp"/></td></tr>

Those breaks will appear above your table, probably pushing it down the
page? And don't use <thead>. Much better to use <th>.

I have been trying to get xsl to work with xml spy 3.5 with very limited

I have not been able to get dpawson's select unique items to work at all (ie
barb, bark, bard)

I have been able to select elements to put in a table but the rest of the
elements (which i do not want) appear in a string above it

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
xmlns:xsi ="";

<xsl:hi_template match="/">
		<head>	<title>Weather Eg 1</title></head>
				<b>Weather Data for Vancouver</b>
						<table border="1" >
						<thead align="center">

<xsl:hi_template match="w:weather[w:city = 'Vancouver']">
	<tr><td><xsl:value-of select="w:city"/></td>
	<td><xsl:value-of select="w:hi_temp"/></td></tr>


on this xml document

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!-- edited with XML Spy v3.5 ( by Louise Lane
(personal) -->
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl"
<weather_report xmlns="";

 puts vancouver and 15.6 in the table but the rest of the elements show
above in a string.

Also, I have not been able to get xsl:sort to work At all

So, is my code wrong? is XML Spy not good for xslt? is there a better gui
based product to use? I really don't want to have to work in NotePad

Thanks in advance,

Louise Lane
