Okay, cool... That worked on my for-each.

I also have this same need in a few templates... But that returns an error

Variables may not be used within this expression. spec_off/offer[./@*[local-name()=-->$version<--]='true']

syntax: <xsl:template match="spec_off/offer[./@*[local-name()=$version]='true']">...</xsl:template>

Is this just illegal all around, or is there a way to have this work too?

Thanks,

Cynthia

yes, try something like this:

<xsl:for-each select="./@*[local-name()=$version]='true'"> ...  
</xsl:for-each>
