Subject: [xsl] A really easy (hopefully) question From: Chris Gow <cgow@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> Date: Thu, 08 Feb 2001 15:47:13 -0500
I have a question that I've been wanting to ask for a while and thought
today would be a pretty good day (for me anyways) to ask.
How come the current() function is part of the XSLT spec ant not XPath? It
seems from what I've seen of it/how its been used, it would be more
appropriate to be in XPath instead of being only available as XSLT. For
example, in the case XPath only implementations how would a user do a
comparison of two separate branches without resorting to some sort of
extension function (which XPath doesn't deal with).
