Could you please construct a complete example that demonstrates the problem? We haven't been able to reproduce it.

(Ideally, product-specific issues shouldn't really go on this list. But now the thread is started here, perhaps it's best to keep it here.)

According to the specification a single curly bracket is not allowed in an attribute. Please see:


In Saxon the bracket {{ is replaced by the single bracket {, which is correct.
Which version of Saxon are you using?

Not sure whether this is a saxon or XSLT issue (or just me for that matter).

Saxon wouldn't allow me to  set the bracketType attrtibute to "{"
(Unexpected token "<eof>" in path expression)

     <xsl:variable name="fieldNames" as="element()*">
        <this:fieldName elem="product" plural="products" bracketType="["/>
        <this:fieldName elem="productThumbnail" plural="thumbnails"

so I set it to "{{" as above, which Saxon accepts but inserts {{ into
my result tree instead of {.

I have a workaround (substring the bracketType attribute) but would
like an explanation please.

kind regards,
