Altova Mailing List Archives

[xsl] using XML elements as attributes in HTML

Hey, hopefully someone will be able to help me out here.

Say I have an XML file like this:
<ans:color xmlns:ans="namespace_location">
<ans:color xmlns:ans="namespace_location">

And I want to produce HTML like this:
      <font color="green">
         some text
      <font color="blue">
         some text

I think I do something like this:
<xsl:for-each select="/">
   <font color="{{/namespace_location}color}">
      some text

But it doesn't work! :'(

I must be wrong on the syntax I think.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks, Seby.
