Hi Raj,

			<xsl:text>Box with Application is avaialble

Using the above code,
I got the output Box with Application is not
available.. Can tell me the reason? why it is not
checking the Box with a name 'Application'..

If you read up on contains, this function requires a value and a substring.
If value is not a string, it is converted to one, using the rules for string conversion.

child::Box/@name (which can be written much shorter as simply Box/@name - as the child axis is the default axis), returns a nodeset containing all the found name attributes. The string conversion rule explicitly states that it takes the string-value of the first node in document order. The first Box/@name you encounter has a string value of "header1", which is not what you are testing for.

You should be able to do something like:

<xsl:template match="Box[contains(@name,'Application')]">
 <xsl:text>Box with Application is avaialble</xsl:text>

So in your for-each, apply templates on Box elements, and have a template for each of your conditions.

I hope this helps.
