Hello all,

I really need to get hold of DTD defined attribute values.
I have the following stylesheet and two XML files:

<?xml version="1.0"?> 
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform";

<xsl:output method="xml" 	indent="yes"	encoding="UTF-8" />

<xsl:variable name='global'> <!-- I really like to get the attributes here!
	<xsl:value-of select='count(//x/@*)' />

<xsl:template match="x" >
<xsl:variable name='from-global' select="count(//x/@*)" />
<xsl:variable name='from-current' select="count(@*)" />
		<xsl:value-of  select="$global" /><xsl:text>|</xsl:text>
		<xsl:value-of  select="$from-current"
		<xsl:value-of  select="$from-global" />


<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8' ?>
<x e='1' a='2'></x>

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8' ?>
            a CDATA #FIXED '2' >

XALAN and SAXON always give: <out>2|2|2</out>
msxml gives <out>2|2|2</out> on mail.txt and <out>0|2|0</out> on mail2.txt

Reading section 3.3.2 on attribute default values of the XML-rec I 
conclude that I should *always* get output '2|2|2' as content of <out>.
Is this right? So is this another bug in msxml? 
For the job at hand I'm bound to msxml, 
so if in error, is there a work around?

Thanks in advance,
Eric Vermetten
