Hello,

i looked at the FAQ and i found the solution to replace characters. But the variable text is empty resp. match="text()"
and then the . returns nothing.
How can i substitute the $ character?

how is the euro character represented in your document ?


is it an entity (e.g. I think its numeric entity is &128;) if so u might have to;

- try using numeric entity for replacement
- make sure your xml encoding is iso-8859-1 (or UTF-8)

you can take a look at an xsl template that has been tested over time at exslt.org

my xsl:
--------------------------------------------------------------
<xsl:template match="text()">
   <xsl:call-template name="change" >
	<xsl:with-param name="text" select="."/>
   </xsl:call-template>
</xsl:template>

<xsl:template name="change">
   <xsl:param name="text"/>
	<xsl:value-of select="$text"/>
	<xsl:choose>
		<xsl:when test="contains($text, '$')">
			<xsl:value-of select="substring-before($text, '$')"/>
	      		&#8364;
		   	<xsl:call-template name="change">
			    <xsl:with-param name="text" select="substring-after($text,'$')"/>
			</xsl:call-template>
		</xsl:when>
		<xsl:otherwise>
			<xsl:value-of select="$text"/>
		</xsl:otherwise>
	</xsl:choose>
</xsl:template>

my xml:
