Are you getting "First Pdf File". If so can you tell me if you are using
<xsl:value-of select="b/c[attribute::type='pdf'][1]"/> or anything else.

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>
attribute type="pdf". I want to extract the first occurence of the
<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
