I'd like to change the values of attribute "href", whenever it appears

however when ever I stick anything inside xsl:attribute (replace <!--

missing something?

     <xsl:template match="@href[parent::dao]">
         <xsl:attribute name="href">
             <!-- do stuff here -->
         </xsl:attribute>
     </xsl:template>

I'm using XSLT 2.0, Saxon 6.5.5.

Thanks,

In addition to the other comments re XSLT version and namespaces, a template matching an attribute only does anything if you apply templates to that attribute. The default processing does not do that:

<xsl:template match="dao">
... stuff..
<xsl:apply-templates/>
..
</xsl:template>

would apply templates to child nodes of <dao> but not to its attributes.
