Thanks, I'm using 8.8.
I'll double check the installation etc.

I get false against both matches.

Probably you are using an older version of Saxon.

With both Saxon J 8.7.3 and Saxon.NET 8.7.3 I get the following result:

<html> <body> <h3>String handling</h3> Case-sensitive match against 'paris': false<br> Case-insensitive match against 'paris': true </body> </html>

Dear All

I'm having a problem with the matches() function, probably due to misreading
the literature. I'm using Saxon.NET version 8.
The following stylesheet needs only a dummy XML input. I was expecting the
case-insensitive match to work.

<xsl:stylesheet version="2.0"
<xsl:template match="/">
   <h3>String handling</h3>
   <xsl:variable name="sentence" select="'I love Paris in the spring'"/>
   Case-sensitive match against 'paris': <xsl:value-of
select="matches($sentence, 'paris')"/><br/>
   Case-insensitive match against 'paris': <xsl:value-of
select="matches($sentence, 'paris', 'i')"/>

I get false against both matches.

Thanks for your help
