You are forgetting what you are actually doing here, which is building a
result tree via your templates.


<xsl:element name="a">
of select="AAA/BBB"/></xsl:attribute>
	<xsl:text><xsl:value-of select="DDD"/></xsl:text>

[i.e. append an element called "a" to the result tree, with an attribute
"href" with the value as specified and the text value of the "DDD" node
on the current tree.]

Shorthand (since that is clearly too much typing]

alue-of select="DDD"/></a>

[i.e. use an attribute value template - denoted by {} ]

If you think of it in the longhand terms (always remembering that you
are building result tree fragments) you won't get as confused...

Subject: [xsl] How do I generate an HTML anchor element?

I have checked the FAQ's for mulberrytech, jennitennison, and Pawson's
without any success. I must not be inputting the search criteria

All I'm trying to do is generate an HTML anchor tag. I all the
combinations get syntax errors .

Here is where I originally started:
         <a HREF="SomeURL.jsp?FirstName=FirstValue&SecondValue
=<xsl:value-of select="AAA/BBB"/>>        <xsl:value-of select="DDD"/>

I have tried just about every weird combination in order get around all
the errors. I'll skip listing all of them for sake of brevity - but here
is a couple attempts: &lt;a HREF="SomeURL.jsp?FirstName=FirstValue&amp;

&#60;a HREF="SomeURL.jsp?FirstName=FirstValue&amp;

So if someone could just point me to a place in one of the FAQ's that
has info on the anchor tagI would appreciate it.

Thanks in advance, Jim.
