I need the text but your suggested expression <xsl:value-of
select="b/c[@type='pdf'][1]"/> gives the same output.

Do you want the element or the text contained in the element? The xsl:value-of
returns the latter. If that is what you want then change your template to

<xsl:value-of select="b/c[@type='pdf'][1]"/>

If it is the former then your template should be:

<xsl:copy-of select="b/c[attribute::className='pdf'][1]"/>

I am having a problem with XPath expression for XSLT. I am trying to extract a
node from xml with a special attribute. For example
    <c type="html">HTML file</c>
    <c type="text">Text File</c>
    <c type="pdf">First Pdf File</c>
    <c type="pdf">Second Pdf File</c>
    <c type="rtf">Rtf File</c>

Element <c> can appear in any order and there could be a number of <c> with
attribute type="pdf". I want to extract the first occurence of the element <c>
which has a attribute type="pdf". I tried to extract it with
<xsl:value-of select="b/c[attribute::className='pdf'][1]"/>
after matching the template for <a>. But I am getting "First Pdf File Second
Pdf File". Can anyone tell me where I am making mistake. I am using
