Im using the latest version of the 'Exchanger XML Editor'. I assume it has an XSLT2.0 processor as Ive used tags such as :
<SubConcept id="{@id}" name="{@name}">
which I believe are version 2.0 compatible.

The error message I get is not very informative but Ive pasted it below anyways:


[SAXON 6.5.3 from Michael Kay] Starting transformation ...
ERROR: Error in expression if(OBJECT-SLOT) then OBJECT-SLOT/@name else DATA-SLOT/@name: Unknown system function: if; SystemID: file:/C:/Samples/Processor1.xsl; Line#: 31; Column#: -1

FATAL ERROR: Failed to compile stylesheet. 1 error detected.

Transformation Interrupted!

This is correct in XSLT 2.0. Are you using an XSLT 2.0 processor? What was
the error message?

I wanted to use the 'if then else' clause inside the <xsl:value-of select="">. I tried doing it this way but its obviously wrong as it returns an error.

<Value type="TEXT" ref="{CONCEPT/@ref}">
<xsl:value-of select="if(OBJECT-SLOT) then OBJECT-SLOT/@name else DATA-SLOT/@name"/>

What would be the right way of writing it or is it incorrect to have it inside the select attribute of the xsl:value-of tag?

Appreciate any comments or suggestions
