hello all,

any ideas on selecting nodes based on the 2 following conditions being met

a) existance of lang attribute is boolean false ( in other words when there is no explicit lang attribute select it as a default)

if a) is TRUE then

b) presence of lang="en" is boolean true ( the 'en' would be supplied by a xsl:param)

a solution at the top level of xsl would be most desirable with an xsl:param setting the desired language to extract ............ so far i've got lots of methods,
just can't find anything elegant enough to apply to a larger system for multilingual support. any comments or pointers with how people are approaching multilingual xml/xsl..greatly appreciated.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8?>
<?xml-stylesheet href="test.xsl" type="text/xsl"?>
<test xml:lang="en">test1</test>
<test xml:lang="de">test2</test>
<test >test3</test>

xsl ( so far... )
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform";>
<xsl:param name="lang">en</xsl:param>
<xsl:template match="/">



<xsl:template match="test">
<xsl:value-of select="node()">


desired result ------------------------------------------------------


thx in advance
