Hi! I may be fundamentally failing to understand how this works, but I've been trying to obtain a sequence result from xsl:apply-templates, where I am looking for each text result to be a member of the final sequence. There are no nodes or tags in the results.
<xsl:variable name="resultVar" as="item() *">
<xsl:apply-templates select="$nodeList" />
As I have said, my expectation was that I would get a sequence, one entry per node in $nodeList.
However when I use
<xsl:value-of select="$resultVar" separator="$separatorVar" />
I get only a single output of all the concatenated results, without a separator.
I'm using Saxon b 9.1 and xsl 2.0.
Any suggestions as to where my understanding has failed would be appreciated.
The problem is in the code you didn't show, or in your input.
The code you didn't show, when applied to the input you didn't show,
produces a result you didn't show, which must consist of a single item,
or $separatorVar is empty, since the only thing we know is that
$separatorVar wasn't visible in the result.
It's a bit hard to offer advice, other than the usual list advice of
supplying a small, complete, example that demonstrates the problem.
