Hi, all!
I'm sure I'm missing something obvious, but I'm staring at this and can't see why it isn't working.
I have XML like this:
>... <etym>Old English.</etym></sg></e>
The template in question looks like this:
<xsl:template match="etym">
                <xsl:when test="../sg">
I want the "Old English" from the XML to trigger the first condition because its immediate parent is <sg>

Your condition is true if the parent has another *child* element <sg>. If you want to test whether the parent *is* a <sg> use test="parent::sg"



That was it -- thank you very much.
