[web] xsl tag inside quotes

Recommended Posts

Let's say this is my XML file:
<blah>
<redneck>
   <name>bubba</name>
   <age>400</age>
   <coolness>100</coolness>
</rednek>
</blah>
Let's say the XML file has a bunch of <rednek>'s and I want to display a list of them in HTML using XSL. I want to put an anchor on each of their names, like this: < a name="bubba" &rt. To do that in XSL I try this:
< a name="<xsl:value-of select="name">">
but that doesn't work since the xsl tag is in quotations. Does anyone have any idea how to get stuff inside quotations in my output?

<a>
<xsl:attribute name="name"><xsl:value-of select="name" /></xsl:attribute>
</a>





That should do the trick. If you need to pass any normal HTML elements like that, use the regular element with xsl:attribute tags to pass the attributes for it.
