Clearly I do not know what I am doing or am misunderstanding what Michael's XSLT 2.0 book is saying. can anyone help?
I have to extract information from a collection of 8000 individual xml files. It has been a couple of years since I have used xslt, so while not a novice, I am very rusty. Where 'docs' is a sub-directory of the directory 'British Library' where my xslt is located and contains a set of files of the format *.xml, I wrote this xslt 2.0 stylesheet:
<xsl:template match="/"> <xsl:variable name="library" select="collection('docs/*.xml')"/>
and got the error in Oxygen: System ID: P:\British Library\read.xsl Severity: fatal Description: FODC0002: The file or directory file:/P:/British%20Library/docs/*.xml does not exist
