Hi Antsnio,

I'd suggest you show a bit more code (xml and xslt) - for example, where is
your $conn defined? What type is it? I'd also take some time to debug the
stylesheet you have using your favorite processor IDE.

I don't understand, it seems that none of the expressions is working ok

@id=Conn is allways false

@id=$conn is allways true

I think i save this for monday...
