Default conditional output

Its been too long since i read Mikes book from A-Z so this one should be easy for you XSLT sharks out there :D

I want my HTML to only output images if the element <NavigationGraphic> is present. Else i want to output content of <title>.

How do i test if the element NavigationGraphic is empty?


       <NavigationItem ParentId="100" Level="1" ShowInNavigation="true" Selected="false" Expanded="false" LoginRequired="false">
           <Title>The page title</Title>
           <NavigationGraphic>Url to the navigation graphic</NavigationGraphic>
           <NavigationGraphicMouseOver>Url to the navigation graphics mouse-over image</NavigationGraphicMouseOver>
           <NavigationSelectedGraphic>url to the selected navigation graphic</NavigationSelectedGraphic>
           <NavigationSelectedGraphicMouseOver>url to the selected navigation graphics mouse-over image</NavigationSelectedGraphicMouseOver>

<xsl:template match="/Navigation">
<xsl:apply-templates select="NavigationItem[@Level='1' and @ShowInNavigation='true']"/>

<xsl:template match="NavigationItem[@Selected='false' and @Level='1' and @Expanded='false']">

                  <xsl:when test="string-length(NavigationGraphic)=0">
                    <xsl:apply-templates select="Title"/>


                        <xsl:attribute name="src">
                               <xsl:value-of select="NavigationGraphic"/>
                        <xsl:attribute name="border">
                               <xsl:value-of select="'0'"/>

In fact "<NavigationGraphic> is present" is quite different from "NavigationGraphic is empty". So, here are that 2 XPath expressions:

<xsl:if test="not(NavigationGraphic)">
   NavigationGraphic element is absent

<xsl:if test="normalize-space(NavigationGraphic) = ''">
  NavigationGraphic element's content is empty
