Try this:

<DIV class="row">
<xsl:variable name="hostname" select="HOSTNAME"/>
<A HREF="HOST.asp?HOSTNM={$hostname}"><xsl:value-of select="$hostname"/></A>
</DIV>

Cheers.

I have tried both methods but it doesn't work.  I don't know if this important is crucial but I am using MSXML parser.

Tks in advance

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

hi Ivanc

in this namespace you'll have to do it like this:

<DIV class="row">
     <A>
          <xsl:attribute name="href">
               HOST.asp?HOSTNM=<xsl:value-of select="link/hostname"/>
          </xsl:attribute>
          <xsl:value-of select="link/hostname"/>
     </A>
</DIV>

I'm sure this helps

I used this xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="ee.xsl"?>

<link>
     <hostname>testhost</hostname>
</link>

that's why I have the "link/hostname"

Cheers

The solution works great.  By the way is there anyway I can find any documentation on all the MSXML parsers.  I realise that each parser have different methods so it would be great to know if there is a complete one for MSXML parsers.  I would raise the points to 200 if you have any links.

Tks in advance
