ah so I got _both_ wrong.
<xsl:value-of select="foo"/> generates a text node with value "one two"
should, as you say, be "onetwo" (actually it was right when I wrote it,
I changed the input example before sending:-) but then my description of
the <xsl:value-of select="foo/text()"/> was also wrong, as described in
another thread. I give up.
I think this is a good example:
produces "texttext" (with whitespace only nodes stripped)
This is because it's the string value of the <root> element - a
sequence of length one.
produces "text text"
This is because it's the string value of each <foo> element - a
sequence of length two.
As there are two items in the sequence they are concatenated using the
optional separator (the default being " ").
