Re: [xsl] if statement

there are several problems here.

1. you are testing on element child, even though your xsl:template has 
made the child element the context node. so the child element you're 
using in your test doesn't exist, as the match would occur on child/child.

2. your xslt syntax is not well-formed XML.

3. your test syntax is not properly formed. i don't know what you're 
trying to accomplish with the brackets, but i'm assuming that you want 
to copy

<span style="color:red">

to the output if a child's content is equal to &#21C4;

what you want is:

<xsl:if test=". = '&#x21C4;'">
  <span style="color:red">
