xsl:value-of

 

Syntax

Description

Extract the value of an XML element and insert it into the output. The select attribute specifies the XPath expression that is evaluated. In the XPath expression, use @ to access attributes of elements. Use “ . ” to access the contents of the element itself. If the result is a node set, the <xsl:value-of> instruction adds the string value of the first node in that node set; none of the structure of the node is preserved. To preserve the structure of the node, you must use the <xsl:copy-of> instruction instead.
