I have an XSL with a for-each select that ignores the text FRGT.  I need to add that it should also ignore FRGH.  How do I add it?

<xsl:for-each select="SorSalesOrderInvoiceDocuments/SalesOrderInvoiceDocument/Merchandise[MStockCode/text() != 'FRGT']">

Thank you

two notes

- it is better to use not(... = ...) instead of ... !=... since equality in a predicate is a set compare
- you should not compare against the text() node because the text you are comparing against can be split in multiple text nodes

I usually compare against the normalized-space actually

<xsl:for-each select="SorSalesOrderInvoiceDocuments/SalesOrderInvoiceDocument/Merchandise[not(normalize-space(MStockCode)= 'FRGT') and not(normalize-space(MStockCode) = 'FRGH')]">
