Hi Mani,

then you either have a non-compliant XSLT processor or your source is not the one you wrote or you didn't use <xsl:apply-templates/>. What processor did you use and how exactly did your XSLT code look like??

For my XSL nested tag question some of you responded with a solution of using text(), but that solution is not working. When I tried with the solution, the text under "Target" tag is printing at the end of text under "Main" ie,

<h1>This is a first test message it is important<h1>
<h2> and <h2>

But I need the output to be <h1>This is a first test message <h2> and </h2> it is important</h1>

Thanks for all the help

I've following XML file.
This is a first test message
<Target> and </Target>
it is important

From the above XML file I'd like to write and XSL so that I'll get following output
<h1>This is a first test message<h1> <h2> and </h2> <h1>it is important </h1>

<xsl:template match="Main/text()"> <h1><xsl:value-of select="."/></h1> </xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="Target">
  <h2><xsl:value-of select="."/></h2>

But before you do that, try to choose a better design for your XML.
Using mixed content (text and elements as siblings of each other)
probably isn't the best approach here.
