Default How can I get the element node of an attribute

Hi,
I want to know how can I get the element node of an attribute.
Suppose that I have the following XML file:
<ELEMENT A1="a" A2="b"/>
<ELEMENT A1="c" A2="d"/>
If the current context is the attribute A2 with value "d" (the second node), how can I get the node.


Thanks in advance,
Carlos Dias

Use the ancestor axis. Your XPath would be
Code:
ancestor::*[1]

Or even simpler the parent axis:
Code:
<xsl:template match="@*">
<xsl:copy-of select=".."/>
</xsl:template>
