Get XSL value from tags with different categories

Hi,

I have a feed with the following structure:

<feed>
  <entry>
    <tw:tags>
      <tw:tag category="category1">EntryCat1</tw:tag>
      <tw:tag category="category2">EntryCat2</tw:tag>
    </tw:tags>
  </entry>
</feed>

Open in new window


And need to get values for xsl:variable. At the moment I use the following:

<xsl:variable name="Category1" select="tw:tags/tw:tag[1]" />
<xsl:variable name="Category2" select="tw:tags/tw:tag[2]" />

Open in new window

But it is not sure that the order is always the same. I would like to implemet something like that:

<xsl:variable name="Category1" select="tw:tags/tw:tag/@category='category1'" />

Open in new window


But here I only get @Category1 = true/false. But I need @Category1 = "EntryCat1"

How should I form the select statemant to get this?

Thanks in advance

Use an attribute selector:
<xsl:variable name="Category1" select="tw:tags/tw:tag[@category='category1']" />
<xsl:variable name="Category2" select="tw:tags/tw:tag[@category='category2']" />
