Hi Carmelo,

Why don't you just manipulate the href attribute as an input parameter? 
The rest is fixed stuff if I understand well.

Albert Einstein once said: "Everything should be made as simple as possible,
but not simpler." :-)

Subject: [xsl] Variables and HTML


I am sure this been debated before to the ground.  I have a variable that
have entities as part of its contents as in the following

variable1 = "&lt; A href  = ....."

I am trying to output this as html

<dd><xsl:value-of select = "$variable1"/></dd>

The problem is that when I get the HTML, I still have the entities inside
the variables causing the HTML browser to display the wrong thing

My final HML looks something like this:

<DD>A &lt;a href="Ballot"&gt;&lt;i&gt;Ballot&lt;/i&gt;&lt;/a&gt; prepared or
&lt;a href="cast"&gt;&lt;{i&gt;cast&lt;/i&gt;&lt;/a&gt; by a voter other
than at a regular polling place.</DD>

I will like to have all those entities resolved.  I need to use the entities
inside the variable because I am doing a lot of manipulations with it.
