Okay, lets say this is my xml:



and this is my xsl:


<xsl:variable name="xml" select="document('names.xml')//root"/>

<!--... skipping all of the not-important things -->

<xsl:template match="/">

<xsl:value-of select="$xml/name/."/>


this is correct right?

Now, i've been working on this all day, i mean ALL DAY. So i've tried every
single / ./ //. /./ .//. combination i can think of.

I'm using xalan.

If I Just do this:
<xsl:variable name="xml" select="document('names.xml')/>

<xsl:value-of select"$xml"/>

I get null + the number of elements/attributes. So with the example xml
above it would return: nullnullnullnullnull

If i put ANY slash in the xsl:Variable i get a xalan error that says it
cannot get the value of $variable.

If i put ANY slash in the xsl:value-of i get a null pointer exception

I've tried xsl:copy-of, xsl:for-each, and xsl:value-of

I've also tried xsl:paramater, and xsl:variable

I've also tried <xsl:value-of select="document('names.xml')/> <xsl:for-each,
<xsl:copy-of, etc...

I've tried EVERYTHING i can think of but i cannot get this seemingly simple
thing to work. Does anyone know if this is a xalan issue, or is there
something i am missing?
