I currently use <xsl:value-of select=name()" /> to display the required node names; however, these are all lower case and this does not look great when displayed. I'd like to know how to convert the first letter of the node name to upper case.

Thanks

   <xsl:variable name="upperCaseAlpha">
        <xsl:text>ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ</xsl:text>
    </xsl:variable>
   <xsl:variable name="lowerCaseAlpha">
       <xsl:text>abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz</xsl:text>
   </xsl:variable>

     <xsl:variable name="alpha" select="translate(substring(substring(name(),1,1),$lowerCaseAlpha,$upperCaseAlpha)" />
      <xsl:variable name="newName" select="concat($alpha,substring(name(),2))" />
 

now name with first uppercase letter is in the newName variable.

The variable newName has the first letter missing and not uppercase. I copied and pasted your example directly.

it can't be, here is a sample and full xslt:

-----------xml------------------------------
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<root>
    <abc></abc>
</root>
----------------------------------------------

-------------xslt--------------------------------
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
    <xsl:output method="xml" version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" indent="yes"/>
    <xsl:template match="/">
        <xsl:for-each select="descendant::*">
            <xsl:call-template name="upperCase"/> <br/>
        </xsl:for-each>
    </xsl:template>
   
   
    <xsl:template name="upperCase">
        <xsl:variable name="upperCaseAlpha">
            <xsl:text>ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ</xsl:text>
        </xsl:variable>
        <xsl:variable name="lowerCaseAlpha">
            <xsl:text>abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz</xsl:text>
        </xsl:variable>
        <xsl:variable name="alpha" select="translate(substring(name(.),1,1),$lowerCaseAlpha,$upperCaseAlpha)"/>
        <xsl:variable name="newName" select="concat($alpha,substring(name(.),2))"/>
        <xsl:value-of select="$newName"/>
    </xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>
----------------------------------------------


, and the output is:

Root
Abc

It was your code:

     <xsl:variable name="alpha" select="translate(substring(substring(name(),1,1),$lowerCaseAlpha,$upperCaseAlpha)" />

should have been

     <xsl:variable name="alpha" select="translate(substring(name(.),1,1),$lowerCaseAlpha,$upperCaseAlpha)"/>

as in your second example.
