Default conditional statement based on attribute value

I'm trying to figure how to write a conditional statement in XSLT that will do one thing if a node attribute starts with a T and another thing if it starts with an M.

<member name="T:IHDomainElementManager">
  <summary>IHDomainElementManager Interface</summary>
<member name="M:Elements(HObject Param0, HObject Param1)">
  <summary>property Elements</summary>

I know my XSLT will look something like this:

<xsl:when test=starts-with(@name,'T:H')>
    ...do something

but it's not matching on the test.

Thanks for your help.

If you want to detect whether the name attribute starts with "T" or "M", write:

 <xsl:when test="starts-with(@name,'T')">
    ...do something
 <xsl:when test="starts-with(@name,'M')">
    ...do something
In your example you wrote test=starts-with(@name,'T:H')... and also the example is not a well-formed XML(quots are missing for attribute value).

Ahhh, I knew it was going to be something like that. Missing quotes.

Thank you very much. Worked beautifully.
