Hi, Nick,

Look at xsl:if

You can often get an if-else arrangement by doing something like this:

<xsl:if test="@someattribute='something'">
  do something...
<xsl:if test="not(@someattribute='something'">
  do something else

Of course, it works with nodes and strings, not just attributes. I just 
grabbed attributes for the example.

In XSL 2.0, there is an actual if-then-else construct. Here's a sample 
from a post by Jeni Tennison a few months ago:

<xsl:sequence select="if (contains($path, '/'))
                      then my:parsePath(substring-after($path, '/'), 
                      else $newElement"/>

"the above" what, by the way?

[xsl] xsl:when, xsl:otherwise question?

Is it possible to implement an else-if condition using the above.

All literature i've read only seems to use xsl:when and xsl:otherwise... 
"xsl:else-when" condition?

Just wondered. Cheers
