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.

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
