Hi,

Currently I am facing the following problem while
converting documents into HTML from XML. I need help
to solve this.


Thanks,

Saurabh


Problem:

I want to see the output of books.xml file as category
wise. In books.xml 3 categories are given c1, c2, c3
within book elements. I want to see either c3 first or
c2 first in html output. But everytime it is coming as
per .xml document. I am writing the books.xml,
books.xsl below. Can you suggest me what specific
command I have to give in .xsl document.


books.xml
----------

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<books>
	<book category="c1">
		<title>ABC</title>
		<auth>XX</auth>
	</book>

	<book category="c2">
		<title>SSS</title>
		<auth>YY</auth>
	</book>
	<book category="c3">
		<title>MNB</title>
		<auth>ZZ</auth>
	</book>
</books>


books.xsl
------------

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">

	<xsl:template match="/">
		<html>
			<head>
			</head>
			<body>
				<table border="1" width="60%" align="center"
cellpadding="0">
					<xsl:apply-templates/>
				</table>
			</body>
		</html>
	</xsl:template>


	<xsl:template match="books">
		<xsl:for-each select="//book">

			<xsl:choose>

				<xsl:when test="@category='c3'">

					<tr>
						<td align="center">
							<xsl:value-of select="title"/>
						</td>
						<td align="center">
							<xsl:value-of select="auth"/>
						</td>
					</tr>
				</xsl:when>


				<xsl:when test="@category='c1'">

					<tr>
						<td align="center">
							<xsl:value-of select="title"/>
						</td>
						<td align="center">
							<xsl:value-of select="auth"/>
						</td>
					</tr>
				</xsl:when>

					
					<xsl:when test="@category='c2'">
					<tr>
						<td align="center">
							<xsl:value-of select="title"/>
						</td>
						<td align="center">
							<xsl:value-of select="auth"/>
						</td>
					</tr>
				</xsl:when>

			</xsl:choose>
		</xsl:for-each>
	</xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>
