lower-case function

My reading of the string processing functions says there's a lower-case function, but I can't seem to get that recognized by my code. Is that function not yet widely supported?

Hi Jon,

In XSLT 2.0/XPath 2.0 there is a lower-case funtion, see below a sample stylesheet that uses it. You need to use Saxon 8 with that as it provides XSLT 2.0 in oXygen.

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="" version="2.0">
<xsl:output method="text"/>
<xsl:template match="/">
<xsl:value-of select="lower-case('ABC')"/>
In XSLT 1.0/XPath 1.0 there is no such funtion, there you can use the translate funtion, something like:

translate($value, 'ABC', 'abc')

Best Regards,
