Hello all,
I need some help.
suppose I have a math:matrix of 4 columns by 4 rows (but the matrix
could be of any size). I am currently "looking at" a math:mn in the 2nd
row, 3rd column during processing of an XSLT transform. I need to be
able to find and sum the longest cell in each of the preceding two
columns. By the "longest" cell, I mean the cell which has the longest
string in the column. In other words, I need to add together the
lengths of the longest strings in all the preceding columns of the
current element being processed. The structure of the matrix conforms
to the w3c schema for mathML, so use any example you like such as
<math>
<matrix>
<matrixrow>
<mn>1</mn>
<mn>10</mn><!-- longest in column -->
<mn>2</mn>
<mi>a</mi>
</matrixrow>
<matrixrow>
<msup><mi>x</mi><mn>2</mn></msup><!-- longest in column -->
<mn>1</mn>
<mn>2</mn>
<mi>x</mi>
</matrixrow>
<matrixrow>
<mn>1</mn>
<mn>1</mn>
<mn>2</mn>
<mn>3</mn>
</matrixrow>
<matrixrow>
<mn>1</mn>
<mn>1</mn>
<mn>2</mn>
<mn>3</mn>
</matrixrow>
</matrix>
</math>
So, for purposes of this example, the answer would be 4.
Thanks in advance,
