I have one more problem. I also need to test for the non-existence of the node <LastName> using an "or" on the "if" statement.

So something like <xsl:if test="'Smith'=Form/Names/LastName or ">

Thank you. Your example got me where I needed to be. It's often the syntax that trips up beginners.

<xsl:if test="'Smith'=Form/Names/LastName">

I have a block of xml that looks like the following.


Not well-formed :-)

I need to display blocks of code only if text matches the text in any of the three nodes(or more) in LastName. So you may have a block of code that should display only if "Jones" is in the above nodes.

<xsl:param name="in" select="'Jones'"/>

 <xsl:template match="Form">
   <xsl:if test="$in = Names/LastName">
     <Match><xsl:copy-of select="$in"/></Match>

michael@wladimir:~/win-dev/XSLT :-) xsltproc lee.xsl lee.xml
<?xml version="1.0"?>
michael@wladimir:~/win-dev/XSLT :-) xsltproc --stringparam in x lee.xsl lee.xml
michael@wladimir:~/win-dev/XSLT :-) # no match, no output
