You are looking for: select="a[b = '7']" The [...] is called a predicate. If you look closely enough at the example, you will notice a select expression containing a predicate as well... Cheers, G.

I have a xml document with the following structure: <main> <a> <b>5</b> <c>G</c> </a> <a> <b>7</b> <c>L</c> </a> <a> <b>4</b> <c>T</c> </a> </main> I would like to know how to, for example, select the following element and use it in my stylesheet (<xsl:for-each select="???????">): <a> <b>7</b> <c>L</c> </a> Note that I select the element with a child b having a value of 7. Cheers, Bjorn P.S. I tried to do my "homework" and found the following example http://www.dpawson.co.uk/xsl/sect2/N3235.html#d4086e214. I, however, do not understand what their solution to the problem is. -- Drs. G.P.H.
