Hi Gerrit,

since my first name is not very international I listen to a whole range of

Talking about ranges. I had the same question about 219, Michael clarified
and since your code covers it already I would suggest Michael to follow
your approach. They are similar anyhow.

I noticed two things though:

1) parsing the ranges does not cover missing leading zeros (if you e.g.
add 8880889 to a aircraft-range it won't show in the result, 08880889
will); first I also looked at using analyze-string but dropped it so I use
following code now (adjusted to the elements you use):

I emitted an xsl:message that would report any input token that doesnbt match '^\d{4}(\d{4})?$'. It might be a better idea to add terminate="yes" to that message instead of heuristically fixing the data, but Ibm not the one to make a call on this.

2) If you add e.g. 0200 to a list the result will show:

     <range start="200" end="200"/>
     <range start="200" end="200"/>
     <range start="201" end="204"/>

and if you add 0201 instead the result is:

       <range start="201" end="200"/>
       <range start="201" end="201"/>
       <range start="202" end="204"/>

Youbre right, therebs still a bug. The matching pattern in the template with xml:id="A" should be changed from
match="range[1][not(@start = following-sibling::*[1]/@start)]"
match="range[1][not(@start = following-sibling::*[1]/(@start|@end))]"

Letbs see which other bugs are left uncovered by our anecdotal test cases. Ibm waiting for the FAA to knock on my door in order to investigate a future fatal incident caused by flaky XSLT codeb&

Ibm posting the complete revised code below. There are no templates in #default mode any more which should help in integrating the code. Ibve added a debug parameter. Apply aircrafts.xsl with debug=yes to get the intermediate stepsb results in /ranges/debug in the output.
