Hi Folks,

In the following template rule is an implicit sequence constructor. The sequence constructor expresses this: "Show the value of Title, then show the value of Author."

     <xsl:template match="Book">
         <xsl:value-of select="Title" />
         <xsl:value-of select="Author" />
     </xsl:template>

Is there a way to explicitly show the sequence constructor?

For example, this would be a neat way to explicitly show the sequence constructor:

     <xsl:template match="Book">
         <xsl:sequence>
             <xsl:value-of select="Title" />
             <xsl:value-of select="Author" />
         </xsl:sequence>
     </xsl:template>

Unfortunately that is not legal.

Is there a way to explicitly show the sequence constructor?

/Roger


you could use


<xsl:sequence select="string(Title),string(Author)" separator=""/>

although that's a sequence of strings not a sequence of text nodes, it possibly comes to the same thing in the end.
